Corporate Finance Boot Camp

The Finance Department at the Smeal College of Business at Penn State is proud to introduce the Corporate Finance Boot Camp. The Corporate Finance Boot Camp is designed to equip our students with technical, analytical, presentation skills, and to prepare them for jobs in Corporate Finance. Our mission is to build a community of highly motivated, hardworking, and knowledgeable students and work with them throughout the academic year to advance their professional goals. We will coach them on a variety of topics – from networking and resume-building to financial statement analysis, financial modeling, and valuation.

Participants in the Corporate Finance Boot Camp will have the opportunity to meet with Penn State alumni, who hold established and successful positions in the field of Corporate Finance; recruiters from corporations from various industries; Smeal faculty and current students. Such events will be held weekly during the semester and participation will be restricted to Boot Camp students only.

The Inaugural Corporate Finance Boot Camp will launch in the Fall 2024 semester.
