Company developed insights into real work.

Virtual work experience programs replicate work at top companies, and connect students to the companies themselves. in only 5-6 hours*, learn relevant tools and skills necessary to complete similar tasks during their work day.

Finance Society

Finance Society is different than Finance Club or the Investment Club because we are not student-run, rather it is an application-based group through the Salisbury Center for Career, Professional and Experiential Education. This program targets finance-focused, high-performing sophomore students to prepare them for significant internships in the financial sector. This cohort program also provides students with alum mentors from Wall Street.

Finance Society meets bi-monthly throughout the semester and work on exploring the different sectors of the financial industry, learning directly from alums and parents. Being an active member of the Finance Society guarantees you a spot on one of our highly competitive Finance Experience trips that we lead each January to NYC and Boston.
