This spring semester, DFE is offering a series designed to increase first-years' understanding of finance careers in a zero pressure environment. The series' five sessions will cover major job roles in the finance industry, how to pursue a finance career, and finance resources on campus.

Each session will be led by upperclass students who have gone through the rigorous finance recruiting process and done internships. No knowledge about finance is necessary or assumed, and you are encouraged to ask any and all questions! See below for the full series schedule:
