The Psi Mu Chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi is an all-gender professional fraternity. We believe in pursuing our passions and supporting each other in everything we do. Our chapter provides members with the opportunity to develop a professional network and sharpen skills applicable to a career in any field. Our members have diverse interests and passions, and come from all years and majors. We participate in a variety of community service projects throughout the semester and enjoy social activities. Every semester we hold educational and networking events with alumni, professors, and professional leaders in a variety of fields–from finance to medicine to entrepreneurship. We also partner with the Simon Business School to hold workshops and events.
The Forté Foundation is a non-profit consortium of leading companies and top business schools working together to launch women into fulfilling, significant careers through access to business education, opportunities, and a community of successful women. Forté Campus at Rochester is the second chapter of this nationally recognized organization. We focus on creating a strong network of students interested in supporting women as they expand their business and leadership skills through education, mentorship, and networking.
The goal of FEC is to foster a friendly environment where undergraduate students interested in economics and finance can network with each other and learn about great career opportunities. We aim to connect students to Rochester faculty and alumni as well as professionals outside of the University. Through events with professionals, closer interaction with the economics department faculty, networking events, and other programs, FEC provides a forum for students of any specialty interested in economics, business, and finance.
The Meliora Finance and Investment Group is an undergraduate organization that seeks to elevate the skill set of students with investment and finance related interests. Our club reviews techniques for stock valuation and business analysis in a simulated work environment. Advice for casual investing, academic planning, and personal presentation is also provided. No prior experience is needed. Our goal is to teach personal money management as well as the technical skills necessary to succeed in a finance related career.
Meliora LaunchPad builds a community of individuals who initiate innovative ideas, share the experiences of entrepreneurship, and inspire others to do the same. We provide a platform where students are motivated to explore the prospects of entrepreneurship in their own field. Through networking and educational opportunities, we will raise campus awareness, foster a network of entrepreneurs, and connect students with valuable resources and opportunities. We help students problem solve with an entrepreneurial and initiative-taking mindset.
