PNC logoSALISBURY, MD---Some 20 economics and finance students from Salisbury University’s Franklin P. Perdue School of Business will travel to New York this spring to participate in the Global Asset Management Education Forum (GAME), thanks to a $10,000 gift from PNC Foundation.

 

The gift supports the PNC Foundation GAME Student Travel Program, which will help cover travel expenses related to the forum, sponsored by Quinnipiac University in March. The event brings together top investment professionals from around the world to interact with students. This year’s panelists include representatives from Deutsche Bank, CNBC, Goldman Sachs, Standard and Poor’s Capital IQ, and Charles Schwab and Company, among others.

“This seminar is an excellent opportunity for students to get real-world experience outside the classroom,” said Dr. Herman Manakyan, chair of SU’s Economics and Finance Department.
