Student Organizations

When you major in business or accounting, your educational experience is not limited to the classroom. You will meet talented and passionate students from across the globe who will expose you to new ideas, and challenge your way of thinking. If you want to expand that network, you’ll find plenty of opportunities in our student organizations.

Accounting Society

Furman’s Accounting Society is open to all students, regardless of major. But if you are planning to pursue a degree or career in accounting, you’re highly encouraged to become a member.

As a member of our Accounting Society, you will have an opportunity to learn more about the accounting profession. We meet several times throughout the year to hear guest speakers, meet with representatives from major accounting firms, and learn about graduate school. A $15 membership fee covers our events. Contact Sandy Roberson at 864.294.2225 for details.

Investments Club

Seeking a career in investment management, private equity or banking? Get real-world experience in our Investments Club. For more than two decades, this organization has provided students with an opportunity to manage a portfolio and learn vital skills that can be utilized in the financial sector.

Here’s how it started: In 1988, Furman’s Board of Trustees transferred $100,000 to the club from the school’s endowment. Since then, the club’s members have used that balance to identify investment strategies, purchase stocks and gain experience in the world of finance. The group also hosts events with Greenville’s business leaders.

Our club currently meets twice a month to learn about investment topics and study our portfolio.
