Pace students win big at Global Asset Management Education Forum
If you’re looking for an education with a focus on real-world experiences, it doesn’t get any more real world than Pace’s Finance 357 class and our Student-Managed Portfolio.

Reunions

They’ve got great ideas how we can enhance the University experience for today’s students. Many are also interested supporting students directly—through mentoring, referrals, scholarships, and other creative opportunities.
