"The Fink Center for Finance and Investments creates a critical link between students, faculty, alumni and other leaders in the finance industry. From intimate guest lectures, to student competitions, to one-on-one mentoring, the Center is an invaluable part of the UCLA Anderson community and has been an integral part of my academic and professional experience."
John Hertzer //Class of '13, 2012 IM Fellow
The Investment Management Fellows program is designed to encourage fellows in pursuing a career in investment management. In addition to their formal recognition as fellows, the selected students will be matched with alumni mentors in the field. These mentors may be drawn from either the U.S. or international investment management firms. Fellows will receive guidance in interview preparation for summer internships. They will also have facilitated access to distinguished investment managers who are friends of the Fink Center.
Fellows are expected to participate in the standard investment management internship recruiting process through the Parker Career Center, in addition to attending special meetings organized by the program. The final choice of internship is left in each fellow's hands, though the program expects that fellows will choose an internship in investment management.
Selection process: Interested first-year, full-time MBA students should submit their application by Friday, October 18th, 2013. The program is open to all first-year Fulltime MBA, UCLA Anderson students with a demonstrated interest and commitment to completing an internship in investment management. Finalists will be chosen by a selection committee based on academic excellence, innovation, creativity, and motivation to succeed in the world of investment management. We encourage applications both from those with experience in the industry and from those who are considering entering investment management for the first time.
