Register TODAY for Training the Street!

Training the Street is a two-part workshop on corporate valuation and financial modeling that helps prepare students for competitive finance internship and job interviews (http://trainingthestreet.com/). This valuable training is offered at many top banks and financial institutions; the Boehly Center in the Mason School of Business brings this training program to campus each semester, and thanks to the generous sponsorship of our benefactors, we are able to provide this program on campus at no cost to students.


We are happy to announce that we have been able to schedule a special session of TTS to take place right at the start of the Fall semester, before the campus Career Fair, Finance Academy’s From DoG Street to Wall Street event, the Career Center’s Wall Street Program, etc. The workshops will be held on Friday, September 1 from 2-6 pm, and Saturday, September 2 from 11 am to 3:30 pm. Students must be able to participate in both 4 hour seminars in order to register, so please check your schedule carefully before registering.


Participation is limited to 45 students, first come, first served.


The registration form can be accessed online at http://forms.wm.edu/32932. Contact the Boehly Center at Boehly.center@mason.wm.edu if you have any questions.
