The hallmark of Tufts is a liberal arts education with an emphasis on critical-thinking skills, leadership development, entrepreneurism, and civic responsibility. A variety of student organizations thrive on campus, linking undergraduates to a complex industry that often overlooks liberal arts institutions as natural sources of talent.
Alumni are invited to serve as mentors, guest presenters, or advisors to any of the following student organizations:
- The Tufts Financial Group meets weekly to decide investment strategies for the TFG Alpha Fund, a portfolio of investments run entirely by students.
- Working to turn big ideas into big profit, members of Young Entrepreneurs at Tufts connect with each other, faculty members, and Boston-area professionals through events, lectures, conferences, and the YET Project Incubator, which provides formal feedback on business plans.
- The Tufts Economics Society promotes student interaction with faculty outside the classroom, bringing business- and economics-related speakers to campus, and providing career information and sponsoring networking opportunities.
In addition to these undergraduate organizations, The Fletcher School is home to a number of graduate-level groups focused on business and finance. The International Business Club links students with professionals from around the globe. The Microfinance and Development Venture Capital Network hosts events and volunteer opportunities and spreads the word about internships and job openings. And the Net Impact Socially Responsible Business Club explores the nexus between the private sector and sustainable development.
