Finance Association


The Santa Clara University Finance Association is committed to progressing members’ network connections and overall  development of financial principals, technical skills and mentality in order to prepare for successful careers. Through the use of influential guest speakers, panel discussions, and community engagement, we attempt to provide the best resources and knowledge available to further expand and strengthen the relationships of the SCU finance student body.

Message from the Presidents:

This year we are excited announce the Finance Association here at Santa Clara. Throughout the year we will invite leaders with financial backgrounds to speak to the organization and invite students to form connections with both alumni and potential employers. The Association will have meetings on a regular basis that will be student led, focusing on relevant topics that are educational for students of all experience levels. I look forward to meeting all members and growing the organization here at Santa Clara.
