The Florida Financial Management Association was established to serve as a primary resource for those interested in managing their own finances and receiving industry knowledge. Some of the topics covered include trading, investment strategies, leveraged buyouts, mergers & acquisitions, and valuation (including discounted cash flows, comparables, and precedent transactions analysis). There is an emphasis on practical and real-world examples used by finance professionals. Typical meetings include a brief training on a chosen topic followed by a hands-on workshop. Occasionally, guest speakers from top financial firms will be invited to speak on a topic and give insightful glimpses into their experiences within the industry. Meetings are open to all students, regardless of their background in finance.
