The TRIP program at Texas A&M is very unique. Undergrads as well as master in finance students can take this program that is focused on trading and risk management.
“The Trading, Risk and Investments Program (TRIP) prepares students in the fields of trading, investments and risk management by combining exceptional class instruction with hands-on internship-based experience. Students graduate having completed three paid trade floor internships with three different board member companies and either an undergraduate degree (BBA Finance) or both an undergraduate and master’s degree (MS Finance and BBA Finance) in five years. Students usually apply for acceptance into TRIP during the fall semester, when they have earned between 30-90 credit hours.”
What a great program. Being able to graduate with 3 paid internships gives you a huge leg up on the competition. Anyone at Texas A&M should check this out and do everything possible to get into this.
