Student Life // Finance Club
Opportunities in Finance
The overall purpose of the Katz Finance Club at the University of Pittsburgh is to inform its members of career opportunities, connect students to hands-on, real-world finance work in investment banking, asset management, corporate finance, and private equity sectors.
The executive team of the Katz Finance Club aims to connect students with the Executives In Residence, current leaders in organizations with firsthand knowledge on how to reach the top ranks in the business world through case preparation and mock interviews. Members of the Katz Finance Club are exposed to various opportunities for growth in the industry through various case competitions, guest speaker appearances, corporate visits to financial institutions, resume workshops, job recruitment workshops, finance electives, and many more.
With the help of the Career Management Center at the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business, the Finance Club hopes to create an experience-based learning environment for its members.
The Finance Club at the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business hosts a variety of events and activities throughout the year to expose students to careers in finance, networking opportunities, alumni panels, and workshops.

As a Professional MBA student, I enjoy being able to work with other part-time students with industry knowledge and expertise. I’m always learning something new, hearing a different perspective, or gaining insights from part-time students in other industries, companies, and corporate cultures.
What makes Katz unique is the environment they cultivate for students right from the start. Katz encouraged a culture of collaboration, what I learned outside the classroom from my classmates has been just as valuable as what I learned from my professors.
