Student Finance Association

The Student Finance Association (SFA) is a student-run organization that works to develop financial acumen in its members by exposing them to the financial industry. We facilitate interaction between student members and fellow peers, individuals in the business community, and faculty.

Our mission is to help students develop the professional, academic and social skills that are essential to compete successfully in today's financial job market. We do this by facilitating interaction between business leaders, faculty and fellow students as well as providing students with optimum exposure to the financial industry.

SFA members can participate in different events during the academic year:

  • First meeting of every Fall we will have a board overview of what Finance is to help new and curious members understand the opportunities within this industry
  • Fixed Income Fund: Students manage a $47,000 bond fund and make the decision on where the money is invested
  • Trips: Past visits we have been to New York, Chicago, Kansas City, Boston, and Omaha
  • Career Fair Social: The evening before the Career Fair, students have the opportunity to network with employers in a relaxed atmosphere
  • Academic Majors Fair: SFA members set up a booth and provide expert advice to underclassmen on what major to choose
  • Finance Advisory Board Social: SFA members have the opportunity to discuss their career goals with experienced alumni
  • All-University Open House: SFA members provide potential students with information on the College of Business Administration and reasons for choosing Finance as a major
