The Financial Management Association of San Jose State University provides its members with increased knowledge of business finance through professional development opportunities and by acting as an interface between business students and executives within the Silicon Valley.
The Financial Management Association of San Jose State University aims to maintain our status as a Superior Chapter of the FMA International Organization.
History of FMA
Established in 1969, the SJSU FMA has been nationally recognized for its membership, activities, corporate sponsorship, and outstanding website. In 1988, FMA was inducted into the National Financial Management Association. During the 98-99 school year, membership grew to over one hundred members. FMA makes finance fun, real, and exciting by linking student members' technical classroom skills with guest speakers' business-world experiences, thus encouraging student interaction. The club draws mainly from finance students, but officers and members alike are also drawn from such diverse backgrounds as management, economics, and accounting. Using both formal and informal activities (e.g., professional guest speakers and sporting events) furthers the opportunity for members to enhance managerial, interpersonal, and social skills.
