Temple Finance Association

The Temple Finance Association (TFA) is the Fox School of Business’s sole finance organization, bringing together the two former finance student professional organizations, the Financial Management Association (FMA) and the Temple University Investment Association (TUIA). TFA allows students to make meaningful connections with current members, professors, and the Fox School’s robust alumni network and prepares members for internships and employment opportunities following graduation. The organization focuses on exposing members to industry professionals through guest speakers across equity research, corporate finance, portfolio management, banking, wealth management, and more. In addition, the organization provides a strong foundation in professional development, financial concepts, and modeling skills through the Wall Street Bootcamp (WSBC). The organization plans to participate in case studies, industry field trips to New York City, and several community service events throughout the year. 

Falling under TFA are three other organizations, including the William C. Dunkelberg Owl Fund, Temple University Fox Fund (Fox Fund), and Temple Private Equity Association (TPEA). The Owl Fund is a ~$1,000,000 student-managed equity investment fund run by 20 Temple University students. In order to join, students must go through the Fox Fund and participate in a three-round interview process. The Fox Fund is a virtual student fund in which students learn basic accounting and finance principles, the concept of value investing, and prepare to join the Owl Fund. Last, TPEA is a brand new organization (founded in Fall 2023) in which members will have the opportunity to participate in private-equity workshops, similar to that of WSBC.
