Practical experience is an important element of the program. The Finance Practicum that serves as a capstone project gives students an opportunity to learn how to apply their knowledge and skills to solve real problems in finance through working with the participating companies in a professional setting. Students work as groups, supervised by a professor, on consulting projects sponsored by companies. The practicum certainly helps the students get prepared before stepping into the real finance industry.
