Georgetwon Stock Pitch Conference

GWSB has been invited to send a team to the 2nd annual Georgetown Stock Pitch Conference (GSPC) at Georgetown University. GSPC is an intercollegiate competition in which teams of students present a stock pitch to a panel of financial professionals from top financial services firms. The competition is an excellent learning experience: students will learn to apply their skills in a competitive, real-world environment that requires teamwork for success. The conference will take place on April 2, 2011 from 12:30pm to 7:00pm at the Georgetown University McDonough School of Business.

GW will be able to send one team of two to four undergraduate students to the GSPC. Interviews for team members will be conducted the first week of the spring semester. Interested students should e-mail ugradbus@gwu.edu. The Office of Undergraduate Programs will follow up with interested students in January to schedule interview times.
