Haverford Stock Market Challenge
The Haverford Stock Market Challenge is a club that is committed to providing students at Haverford that are interested in the financial industry an opportunity to manage their own portfolios, compete against their peers, and learn more about finance as a potential career pursuit.
The club serves three main purposes: 1) Encourage students to learn more about financial markets through managing their own portfolios (utilizing an imaginary $500,000 portfolio on www.marketwatch.com), 2) Encourage an intellectual atmosphere in which students can share ideas about the global economy, financial markets, and career paths, 3) Bring guest speakers to campus in order to expose Haverford students to established people in the world of finance in order to enrich their academic and professional development.
The club aims to increase the opportunities for students at Haverford that are interested in finance to pursue their passion. The ultimate goal would be for this club to survive for future classes of Haverford students in order to create a constructive extracurricular activity for students wishing to pursue careers in the financial industry after graduation.
