The Finance Practicum

Need some more experience on your resume? The MSF Practicum is your opportunity to work as a member of a 2-3 person team on a short-term finance consulting project at a sponsoring corporation for a two week period in January. The projects are structured so that a finished product is delivered to the sponsor at the end of the Practicum. Each student team is assigned a faculty mentor on campus as a resource and backup support.
