Every semester approximately 25 FIS members attend a business trip to Chicago or Minneapolis. The trip includes private informational sessions and tours with three companies, dinner with the entire group, a social with UW-Madison alumni, and a night out on the town. These business trips provide members with networking opportunities, financial knowledge, and internship and career possibilities. Members find the business trip experience helpful when preparing resumes and while interviewing. Companies we have visited in the previous semesters include FactSet, Wells Fargo, Houlihan Lokey, General Mills, Thrivent Financial, and Lazard MM. This spring semester we will be traveling to Minneapolis or Milwaukee.
