  • Organizations

    Students in our department often take part in organizations that allow them to network with others, better understand course material, and gain experience in economics, finance, and real estate.

    Economics and Finance Club

    Connect with Us on FacebookThe Economics and Finance Club is a student-run organization. All majors can join, and there is no cost to participate. The club meets at least once a month, and meetings often include presentations from speakers who work in finance. Past speakers have come from firms such as JP Morgan, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, and many others.

    The club is also responsible for managing Hawk Capital, which is a student-managed investment fund that was created from donations generated within the Leon Hess Business School  (among faculty and staff). Hawk Capital regularly beats the S&P 500 and actively manages the fund on a regular basis; the club also funds an annual trip to Wall Street. It has toured the New York Stock Exchange, NYMEX, Federal Reserve Bank (including the gold vault), Museum of American Finance, and various financial institutions. Besides its academic and social aspects, the club's officers offer free tutoring to any student in economics and finance classes.
