When it comes to business, New York City is where the world meets. Global headquarters, stock exchanges, big banks and countless opportunities draw some of the world’s finest financial minds.
The Global Scholars Program is designed to introduce a select group of FIU’s most promising business students to prominent alumni and executives of top financial institutions in NYC.
Through the generous support of Eric ’86 and Sandra ’89 Maldonado, business students embark on an unforgettable journey that includes visits to a diverse set of companies that help drive the New York City economy. Previous corporate visits have included The Related Group, L’oreal, banking giants Citi and BNY Mellon, BlackRock, the mutual fund leader, NASDAQ, and Markit. The Scholars learn firsthand what it takes to succeed in a highly competitive global marketplace.
