The Financial Management Association (FMA) is a student-lead organization that promotes the interest and understanding of the finance industry for the College of Business at East Carolina University. Each month we invite speakers who are experts in a specific area of finance and hold an open discussion related to their field of expertise. All FMA members are encouraged to ask questions and interact with speakers in order to broaden their knowledge and learn from first-hand experiences.
The FMA also travels to Washington D.C. and New York City during fall and spring semesters. Our trips include visits to exclusive financial institutions as well as a social with ECU alumni. Some previous visits include: New York Stock Exchange, Securities and Exchange Commission, Federal Reserve, World Bank, Bloomberg, PIMCO, and BlackRock. Students are given the opportunity to network with some of the top leaders in the finance world and experience once-in-a-lifetime meetings.
FMA is also currently developing and planning a few new events that promote basic financial literacy and budgeting.
