Five finance students from the Perdue School of Business traveled to New York March 19-21 to participate in the Global Asset Management Education Forum (GAME), thanks to a $5,000 gift from PNC Foundation. The gift supports the PNC Foundation GAME Student Travel Program, which helps cover travel expenses and registration fees for the forum, sponsored by Quinnipiac University. The event brings together top investment professionals from around the world to interact with students. The forum attracted more than 1,000 participants from over 120 colleges and universities representing 44 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia, as well as over 100 speakers, panelists, workshop hosts and judges from nearly 100 different companies and organizations.
"The insights gained from the many high profile professionals speaking at the conference, as well as the networking opportunities simply cannot be duplicated in the classroom environment. The conference is an amazing opportunity for our students, and we are grateful to the PNC Foundation whose generous support has allowed us to make the GAME Forum a regular part of our portfolio management students' training in the last few years," said Dr. Herman Manakyan, professor of finance.
