2018 TCM Investment Conference was one of the most useful events I have attended. It helped me to see which career path could be suitable for me after my graduation. Many professionals with different backgrounds from private investment firms to insurance companies came to share their experiences with students. I really appreciate the opportunity to meet many professionals all at once and get genuine and honest advices. Also, all the seminars were really informative that showed us how we can apply the academic knowledge in the real word scenarios.The stock competition was engaging and fun activity during the seminars. It required my team to make thoughtful investment decisions with limited time and information in competitive nature. - Zula Battulga College of Business, Finance College of Liberal Arts, Economics California State University, Long Beach
