K to the Big Apple: Careers in Finance, Economics and Business
June 7-10th, 2017
Open to sophomores and juniors in all majors

Travel to New York City to participate in site visits, tours and conversations with K alumni influential in such sectors as trading/financial markets, private equity, commercial banking, corporate finance, wealth management, mergers and acquisitions, entrepreneurship, and investment banking.  This K-trek is designed for students interested in exploring careers in finance, economics, and business (especially such fields as trading/financial markets, private equity, commercial banking, corporate finance, wealth management, mergers and acquisitions, entrepreneurship, financial writing and investment banking).

Students will gain insight into the complexities of these working environments and careers, develop skills in self-presentation and business etiquette, and cultivate professional relationships in the New York City area.

The program will arrange and pay for round-trip flights from Detroit to New York City, lodging and on-the-ground transportation in New York, and dinners.  Students will cover their own breakfasts, lunches, and other costs, such as travel to/from the Detroit airport and airport parking. This program is generously funded by the parent of a K alumna as well as several alumni, and incorporates the time and talents of K alumni working in business, finance and economics in the New York City area.
