Stay Involved and Upcoming Events
There are many ways to engage with the Heilbrunn Center and our students.
Mentor a Student
As part of the Value Investing Program experience, each student is paired with at least one industry professional to provide guidance and advice on career development, feedback on pitches, and other assistance with networking and recruiting. This mentorship provides our students with the invaluable opportunity to engage one-on-one with an active member of the investing community and has led to many lifelong professional friendships. For those unable to commit the time to a formal mentee, we also offer mock interview preparation for the VI Program students and are building a directory of practitioners to conduct mock interviews on a one-off basis.
If you are interested in participating with the mentorship or mock interview program please contact Julia Kimyagarov at [email protected].
Speak on Campus
The Heilbrunn Center, in conjunction with CSIMA, hosts a regular professional development series for students to hear from and ask questions of practitioners in a small group setting. If you are interested in speaking on campus please contact Meredith Trivedi at [email protected].
Judge a Stock Pitch
Participate as an IIC judge, CSIMA Stock Pitch Competition judge, Applied Security Analysis practice pitch judge or meet with students individually to provide feedback on their verbal and written stock pitches. If you are interested in serving as a judge, please contact Meredith Trivedi at [email protected].
The Heilbrunn Center has planned a robust calendar of events for students and the alumni-practitioner community during the 2023-2024 academic year. Listed below are Center's open events.
