Residency Study Trip

During the summer of the second academic year, students fulfill a 4 week full-time residency in Cleveland and New York. Cleveland is home to the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland and one of the most important banking centers in the United States. During the residency, students will take three Master of Finance courses from Weatherhead’s faculty, participate in several corporate and alumni events, and attend the New York City company visits. The visit to A-list Wall Street firms in New York usually lasts 3 days with seminars and presentations on site, followed by an alumni reception and plenty of networking opportunities with top players in the financial industry. The corporations we visited in previous years include: Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, Ernst & Young, Bloomberg, UBS, AW Jones and Brown Brothers Harriman.
