Forté College Fast Track to Finance Conference

Applications open Fall 2020.

Do you enjoy working in an exciting and fast-paced environment, researching options, and making recommendations? Consider a career in finance!

The Forté College Fast Track to Finance Conference is a great place to start. In this one-day conference, you'll explore a multitude of financial careers, including investment banking, sales and trading, and relationship management. You will learn by "doing," strengthen your leadership skills, expand your network, and get an inside look at how the financial services industry works.

You don't need to be a finance major to attend — financial organizations need women from diverse academic backgrounds. Meet women financial leaders and recent college grads from top firms who will share why they love their career choice, along with insights on developing your personal brand, launching a finance career, and building client relationships.

The best part? It’s free to apply! Admitted students from Forté Rising Stars schools can also attend for free — and the conference is just $50 for all other undergrad women to join us.

Find A Work Environment Where You Can Be Yourself

While studying at Harvard Law School, Johanna Robinson had a hunch she'd be happiest working in business. When her first two years practicing law ultimately strengthened her interest in a finance career, it motivated Johanna to earn an MBA and led her to Evercore's corporate advisory practice.
