The 2020 Financial ConNEXTion Cruise will be March 16-21, 2020. This may be on your college's Spring Breaks, but either way, this is an educational opportunity-- with some fun thrown in! 

Educational Program & Student Contests

        The Cruise includes educational programs with a blend of technical and business practical topics, evening networking dinners, optional cruise based spouse/guest programs, and ship and shore group fun.

       In addition, the cruise is host to two student contests: Industry Issues Contest which will award up to five participating college teams a total of $10,000 and the Elevator Speech Contest which is open to all student attendees.

Why a Cruise? 

​The cruise came about as a way to hold a moderately priced conference where financial services students could connect with industry professionals.  Over the years, we have found that the venue gives an excellent opportunity to get to know others better than a normal conference, whether it's talking at dinners, over evening entertainment, shore excursions or just lounging around the pool.  It's a chance for students to get to know professionals who have lots of experience and great connections.  For professionals, it's a great chance to get to know and help influence the next generation, with the possibility of finding your next great team member.
