As California State University, Bakersfield's chapter, we are dedicated to opening as many doors as possible to the financial world for our students. We visit cities such as Chicago, New York, and San Francisco yearly for students to enjoy hands-on experience in the area of finance. Through traveling, students are given the opportunity to ask finance professionals what characteristics are most sought after in new hires and where the biggest opportunities are in the finance industry. Aside from traveling, we also host events where finance professionals introduce students to fundamental financial ideas and careers.
