Department of Finance and Financial Services

Finance Club

The Finance Club exists to create opportunities for students interested in finance and financial services to develop career and social awareness, professionalism, leadership skills, and industry contacts through presentations, field trips, community service, and other activities. We also seek to establish an ongoing presence at Wright State and in the community.


  • Learn more about finance
  • Expand our cultural experiences
  • Practice our abilities in finance in the real world
  • Raise enough funds to take a study trip to New York

We hope that this three-pronged approach will help our students grow into well-rounded employees for the Dayton region and beyond.
