There are dollar signs associated with RIT’s Financial Management Association, a student organization under the helm of the E. Philip Saunders College of Business. Members get to manage real money, track an investment portfolio with a market value of $110,000 and decide whether to invest or not invest based on their analysis. Eight members presented financial assessments during a late-April field trip, as they met with company executives in New York City’s financial marketplace. Jaré Allocco Allen, left, assistant controller at RIT, accompanied students William (Jon) Weintraub, Guangjun Ding, Troy Lubberts, Russell Sisipenzi, Harpreet Singh, Deep Ashar and Seerat Sodhi, along with Daniel Tessoni, right, accounting professor in the Saunders College (not pictured is Financial Management Association President Mayank Bindal). Tessoni was responsible for arranging executive meetings at WL Ross & Co. and International Textile Group (Cone Denim). James Watters, senior vice president of finance and administration at RIT, was responsible for arranging the executive meeting at Goldman, Sachs & Co.
