The SMART Lab
Equipped For Success
“FIN 3720 lectures, modeling practice, and the case studies, along with access to Wall Street Prep, allowed me to cultivate technical skills not always available on college campuses. These skills are essential when recruiting for internships and jobs in investment banking, private equity/credit, corporate development, and more. This course and the instructor’s industry expertise and network allow LSU students to compete with students from any university, anywhere, and helped me obtain internships in private credit and corporate development throughout my first two years at LSU.”
