Participants have the opportunity to present their company’s valuation, in English, to a jury panel composed by FEP teachers and the Corporate Finance team of a firm. In previous editions, jury members were from consulting firms such as KPMG and Deloitte.
FEP Finance Club promotes the reunion of the academic community with keynote speakers to discuss the major issues of the professional world, aiming to achieve an open-minded debate.

Finance Meetings are informal sessions for students who seek to learn from the experiences of CEOs and other professionals in Finance.
