Girls Who Invest is a nonprofit organization founded two summers ago with the goal of getting more women into the field of investment management. Their Summer Intensive residential program is located at the University of Notre Dame or at the University of Pennsylvania and has participants from across the county and from every major. This four week program provides students with the opportunity to learn core investment concepts from some of the most respected business professors from across the nation. The curriculum will cover investment management while also covering ethics from the CFA Institute, Bloomberg Terminal, presentation skills, and interview preparation. The curriculum also includes site visits with select firms. Scholars who successfully complete the four-week educational program continue on to six-week paid summer internships secured by GWI with leading investment management firms. The program is open to current sophomores, and applications close on December 1st.
In addition, Girls Who Invest offers two online learning programs, one is the CFA Institute Investment Foundations certificate program for freshmen women and the other is through the Coursera online learning platform, including a joint certificate program from Wharton and Coursera for sophomore women. The application deadlines for these programs are also December 1st.
