WHAT

The Twin Cities Scholars of Finance Symposium gives students an opportunity to network with top leaders in the Twin Cities finance community. Featuring a panel discussion, keynote speakers, plated dinner, and networking time, the event connects students with professionals and faculty over the course of an evening. The setting allows for candid discussion about careers and topics in finance, as well as the creation of meaningful connections.

"I found almost every answer the panelists and the executives at my table gave very insightful, valuable, and applicable to my life" - UMN Student

"This was my second time attending the Symposium and I enjoyed it once again. Being in a room with many high-level executives was a valuable experience. After hearing the speakers' life stories I was inspired to work harder toward the goals I have set for myself" - UST Student
