Sustainable Finance Initiative

The Sustainable Finance Initiative at WC

A Distinctive Interdisciplinary Co-Curricular Undergraduate Experience for Students of All Majors


The Sustainable Finance Initiative helps students to understand various aspects of the financial system by introducing them to ideas and insights from different disciplines.

Banking and finance are essential to the functioning of a healthy, vibrant, growing economy. A malfunctioning or unstable financial system can paralyze economic activity with consequences felt by every household.

Guided by faculty members, students discuss various aspects of the financial system and the implications for our society.

Students have the opportunity to meet leaders from the financial industry, government institutions and other organizations that shape our financial system.

The Sustainable Finance Initiative provides funding for internships and offers scholarships to students from all majors.
