FinTech Group

The FinTech Group is the leading university-wide organization for students interested in careers in financial technology. Founded in the spring of 2020, the organization hosts two marquee events annually: a Career Trek to New York and a first-of-its-kind nationwide student app competition that brings in top-tier industry experts and leading faculty from business schools worldwide to judge student submissions from all over the country.

The FinTech Group is the leading university-wide organization for students interested in careers in financial technology. FinTech is everywhere – from credit cards to digital payments to mortgage lending to cryptocurrencies – and the industry has seen explosive growth over the past ten years. 

The goal of the organization is to promote FinTech within the Penn State student community and to position Penn State as a national leader in providing educational resources and market opportunities to students interested in pursuing FinTech as a career.

Founded in the spring of 2020, the organization hosts two marquee events annually: a Career Trek to New York and a first-of-its-kind nationwide student app competition that brings in top-tier industry experts and leading faculty from business schools worldwide (including Penn State) to judge student submissions from all over the country. The group’s efforts are generously supported by a gift from Jeff Gido ’94 and Goldman Sachs Gives, the philanthropy arm of the investment bank Goldman Sachs.
