UFA is a McCombs affiliated organization for UT students
The University Finance Association was founded in 1951 to bridge the gap between academic and professional life. UFA supplements classroom learning with weekly meetings containing either a lecture or corporate sponsor event. Students are also given the opportunity to participate in investment teams and industry groups to learn how to evaluate stocks, understand industries, and start investing in the UFA portfolio. UFA also hosts a variety of events which are open to all members including: workshops, interview preparation, case competitions, and stock pitches. UFA strives to help students to identify careers of interest and develop the skills needed to succeed. Simultaneously, UFA provides a networking space for students to learn from upperclassmen mentors, meet other motivated peers, and reach alumni working professionals, realizing that sometimes it’s not just what you know – it’s who you know.
Prospective members are encouraged to attend a few meetings to get a feel for our organization before making a commitment. Sign up for our newsletter to receive updates about meetings and events, and follow our Facebook page for the most up to date details.
