Who we are
The Liga de Mercado Financeiro was created because of a need for a connection between the financial and the academic world. With the support of the board of directors of our university, our league offers to students the necessary information to prepare and increase the chance of succeeding in this market through lectures, study groups, networking and other activities.
How everything started
Our league was created in 2007 with graduating students as founders and managers, companies to support the cause, sponsors and professors from our college to give guidance. We are the very first finance club in Brazil and our goal is to become a reference in finance in the entire academic and professional environment. We want to achieve this goal by providing our colleagues the best opportunities and by showing the financial markets professionals with an excellent background.
In January 2008, the league members conducted a research with 14 of the biggest institutions in the financial markets, such as Bradesco, Itau, Santander, CitiBank, Banco Safra, Itau Bba, etc. Their goal was to understand the key questions: what is the necessary knowledge a student who wishes to join the financial industry needs and if the students in this work environment really have all the knowledge they need to. Through these results, our league members created a structure that could offer the students in our university all the necessary information they need to start their careers.
