Student Summit


Concurrent with the second annual IDAC Global Summit for professionals in asset management, we are offering a day-long educational session for college level (or equivalent) students to increase awareness and engagement in the field of asset management. The IDAC Student Summit will include an enlivening mixture of lecture, panel discussion, skills training, and networking. Participation for students (and any interested representatives from talent partner organizations) is free, and food and drinks are included.

For students traveling from outside the Chicago region, please contact your talent partner organization about booking hotel and travel accommodations.

See below for the Student Summit Agenda. The student event will run parallel to the general session and will have four breakout sessions (in bold) for students.
