specialized field of study. Each group provides students with opportunities to exercise
skills learned in the classroom, to enrich their academic experience, and to prepare
for future careers.
Financial Management Association (TU MFA)
The Financial Management Association (TU FMA) is focused on serving the global finance
community and developing knowledge about financial decision making. Members have the
opportunity to discuss news, issues and concepts regarding financial practices through
interaction with fellow students and faculty.
