An Invaluable Resource
The Puelicher Center provides invaluable resources to the students, researchers, and the banking industry throughout Wisconsin, the Midwest, the nation, and the world.
The Center supports undergraduate and graduate degree programs offered by the Finance Department that are tailored to careers in the financial services sector. The Center offers scholarships for undergraduate students and research assistant positions for graduate students in banking and finance. The Center's advisory board helps identify internship and placement opportunities for students. Students are exposed to, and often participate in, cutting-edge faculty research on important banking issues. In addition, involvement of banking professionals through the Advisory Board expands the real-world experience of banking students.
The Center's research funding serves as a magnet to attract and retain top faculty to the Wisconsin School of Business. The Center hosts research directors from the regional Federal Reserve Banks who bring monetary policy to life in lectures to both students and faculty.
The banking community benefits from the Center in several ways: access to top-caliber graduates, invitations to seminars and workshops on important and timely issues, exposure to research reports on important banking topics, and a variety of other programs bringing together academic and professional interests.
