Demystifying Finance: A Series for First-Year Undergrads

The five-part series will acquaint you with foundational concepts, such as buy side vs. sell side; major job roles in investment banking; alternative finance career paths, such as private equity and hedge funds; the internship recruiting process; and the resources on campus that support students going into finance.
