Our Core Trading Consultants (CTCs) are members of a student-run finance club. Members manage the Trading Room, train other students and manage a real portfolio. Students get both hands-on experience in this club and strong leadership opportunities.
Students have the chance to manage real funds. The Fixed Income and Equity Portfolio Management courses have over $750,000 attached to them for students to manage.
The Adirondack Cup Competition, started in 2011 by Ithaca College alumnus Steve Gonick, is an inter-collegiate competition focused on small cap stocks.

We take an annual meet-the-firms trip to New York City to visit finance firms and interact with alumni. Companies recently hosting site visits include Goldman, Sachs & Co., Morgan Stanley, J.P. Morgan, Blue Ridge Capital and IRON Financial.
