With various clubs, organizations and scholarship programs, as a Whitman student, you will have the collaboration and professional development needed for successful preparation for a career in finance.

The Financial Management Association

Open to all students across the Syracuse University campus who have a general interest in finance, the club broadens this common interest and helps develop the financial practice, knowledge, and expertise of its members.

Financial Planning Club

Bringing together students from across disciplines who are interested in learning more about financial planning, the club seeks to attract speakers of national prominence who will help inspire successful professionals with careers in financial planning.

Real Estate Club

Established to provide a forum in real estate and to learn more about the industry, the real estate club was developed in collaboration with the Whitman Kuhn Real Estate Center.  Guest speakers and site visits are the highlight of participation, with areas of real estate including architecture, construction, development, finance, law, management, and sales commonly covered.

The Student Investment Club

In today's markets, experiential learning through organized models is important for student growth and success in financial services.  The Ballentine Investment Institute helped form the Syracuse University Investment Club in recognition of this need. Students from across campus gain firsthand experience in portfolio management as members of the Investment Club

The Orange Value Fund, LLC

The two-year program combines rigorous academic training, security and business analysis, portfolio management and career components that enable students in the program to acquire the necessary skills to seamlessly work in either investment banking, equity research, or asset management.
