Undergraduate & MBA Student Chapters

With more than 3,000 student members in 175+ active chapters in the United States of America, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates, Australia, and China, FMA-sponsored college and university chapters offer a variety of programs and services developed to meet the needs of their members, such as speaker programs, field trips and social events. 

Student organizations, like FMA Student Chapters, are the perfect place to meet others who share the same interests and passions that you may not otherwise meet on campus – or in lecture halls with 200+ students! By participating in your local chapter, you gain the opportunity to:

  • Broaden your knowledge in finance and other areas
  • Sharpen your professional skills
  • Gain recognition for outstanding achievements
  • Meet new people and make new contacts and friends
  • Gain experience you can list on your resume
  • Prepare yourself for the job world
  • Be aware of other ideas and career opportunities
  • Learn how to pursue your career path
  • Access in-depth research in finance
