About the Financial Lecture Series

Our Financial Lecture Series features annual presentations made in March by PCOM staff and guests on certain financial topics. These presentations aim to prepare students for important, immediate financial decisions usually made soon after graduation. Although geared toward students who will soon be graduating, we encourage all students to attend to better prepare themselves for life after graduate school.
