Our Education Series
Cornell Hedge Fund prepares our analysts for success in the finance industry through our rigorous new member education and sophomore series. Through our rigorous 10-week New Member Education process, new members develop an in-depth understanding of accounting, financial modeling, and valuation techniques, equipping them with the necessary technical skills to become great investors. Then, through our Sophomore Series, sophomores continue to build upon their professional and technical skillsets, preparing them to excel in the recruiting process.
