Created in 2006, the New York City Program in Finance and Law provides students with a first-hand look at the high-stakes world of corporate finance. The program allows select students to spend a semester in New York City with experts in this fascinating area of legal practice. The New York City Program in Finance and Law Endowment Fund supports the costs associated with the program including classroom space, materials, and field visits – opportunities that provide students with an engaging semester and varied curriculum.
Participation in the program opens doors for our students - especially those for whom practicing in the City may only be a dream – through in person lectures from renowned practitioners, site visits, and networking and externships with prestigious alumni and friends. Being in the City matters and, thanks to this program, the students who participate in it are three times more likely to work there and two times more likely to work in business and industry. Many have gone on to work in government regulation, legislation, the judiciary, in-house for global corporations, at large firms, and in many other rewarding positions.
With less than 20 students accepted each year, the program offers an intimate and innovative curriculum in our Manhattan classroom. Students get a feel for the realities of practicing in the financial field and make valuable connections. And because finance and law are increasingly global in nature, the program devotes attention to international issues as well.
Your support can help keep this pathway open and have an immediate and lasting impact on our next generation of leaders. We thank you for your consideration in supporting the New York City Program in Finance and Law Endowment Fund.
