Boston University Finance and Investment Club is the largest undergraduate student organization in the Questrom School of Business. As a club, we serve the Boston University community in the following three ways:
- Give students exposure to the financial services industry by creating and nurturing relationships with professionals and by organizing various career development
- Manage over ~$650,000 as part of Boston University’s endowment by investing in small-cap stocks using a value investing approach
- Educate the undergraduate student population through our Investment Research and Quant Research divisions
Letter from Executive Board:
Dear Alumni, Students, and Administrators,
The BUFC Executive Board for the 2020-2021 academic year is excited to lead the club and continue improving its program, reputation, and strong connections with alumni in the financial services field, despite the challenges that COVID-19 provides. In the past few years, the club has changed in many aspects. We have made significant improvements to our Investment Research program, enhanced our newly formed Quantitative Finance division, and put a stronger emphasis on helping our club members obtain employment in the financial services industry.
In the coming year, we have several goals that we hope to accomplish and have already started making progress towards achieving them. We plan to improve each division of the club and develop a roadmap for the next few years. We understand that the job market is constantly changing, and we are always looking to adapt to best help our members learn relevant skills that make them more desirable to financial services firms. We are looking to involve alumni, professors, and other interested professionals in order to help develop our curriculum. We plan to follow this method for years to come. We are always looking for feedback on how to improve as an organization and welcome any input. In addition, we have general, big-picture goals for the club that we are actively tackling. We plan on marketing across BU to open opportunities for students across campuses and also to have the best selection of candidates for our programs and for job opportunities that arise.
We understand that the large part of success for our members and for BU comes through alumni-student engagement and mentorship. This year, we have decided to shift our focus to improving alumni relations and engagement in general. We plan to start a large outreach program and build a stronger network in the hope that we can leverage these relationships to help the recruiting efforts at Boston University and help our bright and highly capable members succeed in recruiting.
We ask that if you are an alumnus or an interested party who would like to be more involved in mentoring students, recruiting at BU, or helping advise the club, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how you can get involved. Alumni involvement is imperative to the success of BU Finance and Investment Club.
We look forward to another successful year.
BUFC Executive Board 2020-2021
