UNDERGRADUATE FINANCE CONFERENCE
The Undergraduate Finance Conference (UFC), hosted by the York Finance Club, is the quintessential annual event of York University’s finance community. Over the years, UFC has grown tremendously in both size and scope, and this year, the conference will unite the top finance students in the heart of Canada’s financial center over a two day event. The first evening features a new stock pitch competition judged by experienced, industry professionals. Following is a full day of events consisting of company-exclusive networking sessions, workshops, keynote speakers, office tours, and a signature evening cocktail. As YFC continues to build upon our tradition of excellence, the Undergraduate Finance Conference is a true mechanism for continuing to further our value proposition to both our members and sponsors.
The Undergraduate Finance Conference seeks to unite the brightest minds in finance across Canada in an interactive setting where they can develop the skills necessary to be successful in today's increasingly complex and dynamic market. Last year's Undergraduate Finance Conference welcomed applications from 11 universities across the country. We target an 80/20 split between internal and external delegates.
An unprecedented number of applications were received for last year's conference, each of which were meticulously screened. Our application process includes scoring answers to related applications questions alongside rigorous resume screening. This process ensures the highest quality of delegates and provides sponsors with access to a highly competitive pool of students.
