Fall 2020: Office Hours with Executives in Residence 

Hosted by the Stephen D. Cutler Center for Investments and Finance, undergraduate and graduate students are invited to join us for virtual weekly office hours featuring our Executives in Residence.

EiR office hours are open to all finance students, both undergraduate and graduate, who are interested in talking with our industry experts to discuss topics and questions around career guidance, industry trends, interview prep, recommendations for improving your skillset, or questions more specific to your finance coursework. 

This is a great opportunity to network with industry executives with a wealth of knowledge in finance and investments. There’s no limit to the number of office hours students can attend. Come when you can at any point during the hour and feel free to leave as you need to.
