IR Students Kick Off the Year with the Experts

Next week, students of Fordham’s investor relations (IR) program will set the tone for the new academic year in an interactive event with prominent executives in the IR field.

Corporate Access and the Benefits of the Non-Deal Road Show
Wednesday, Sept. 3
6:30 p.m.
12th Floor Lounge / Corrigan Conference Center
Lincoln Center Campus | 113 West 60th Street

The event, which is sponsored by the Fordham Investor Relations Society Team (FIRST), will feature two IR experts — Corey Kinger, senior director of Brainerd Communications, Inc., and Julie Neumann, director of corporate access for Cowen and Company.

“[Kinger and Neumann] are terrific women who are at the top of their game in the investor relations world,” said John Walsh, adjunct professor at the Graduate School of Business Administration. “These [FIRST] events are interactive between guests and MIR students, and everyone is welcome.”

FIRST is a student group that comprises members of Fordham’s master’s degree in investor relations (MIR). Launched in 2011, the MIR program is a 39-credit program that takes place one weekend per month and features small, personalized classes that use an experiential approach.

The program serves individuals who want expertise in the field of investor relations as well as current business executives seeking advanced training in investor relations for enterprises that are preparing for public offerings or are already publicly traded.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, email FIRST.
