The Corporate Finance Department is looking for students who have or are about to gain experience in company valuation. This team is normally composed of students with previous or simultaneous valuation experience on Corporate Finance courses. The members produce Equity Research Reports, which can then be presented to a jury composed of FFC alumni, on the Equity Challenge. In addition, the department participates 0n the CFA Institute Research Challenge every year, having reached the second place on a national level last edition.
The Career Development Department is aimed at improving the knowledge and skills of the students, increasing their chances of a future successful career through internal and external activities. The Department is also responsible for Recruitment and Selection, Finance Meetings or Workshops and for the Financial Literacy Project, together with our partner Fundação Dr. António Cupertino de Miranda. The project's goal is to improve the financial literacy of the young students through the sharing of basic financial concepts and ideas (more than 4000 young students involved last year).
In the External Relations Department, you can choose between a large number of projects. As such, you may be interested in working with our Marketing & Social Media team, taking care of the website and other social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or LinkedIn.
