During Interterm in January, the Amherst College Career Center launched its Finance Trek as part of the newly established Careers in Business and Finance Program. This immersion program introduces 12 carefully selected sophomores to different areas within the finance industry. During the weeklong program, the group visited 14 employers, including bulge bracket investment banks, hedge funds, investment management firms and private equity firms. The group also had four networking receptions and met with 75 Amherst alumni working in business and finance.
