Who We Are?
Prague Wall Street Club is a student organisation run by CERGE-EI students, alumni and other enthusiasts. We are open to everyone who wishes to make himself competitive in the market by gaining the perspective of big picture Finance and acquiring applied, real world financial skills. We run public sessions as well as semester long initiatives, networking events and more.
Our mission is to make our members competitive for their careers in Finance, Consulting, Banking, Insurance or any other industry that requires cutting edge analytical skills. We involve ourselves in education, application and networking. Contrary to the alphabet, however, we believe that the education comes prior to the application. Therefore, before we allow you to work on our projects, we will require you to learn a lot first. You can join us at any stage of your career, regardless of whether you are a student or professional. The only characteristics that we require are drive, passion and commitment.
You can join the PWSClub at any stage of your career, regardless of whether you are a student or a professional. You become a member of The Club once you register to any of our initiatives (typically a semester long) and you become an alumnus once you successfully complete it. You can also meet us at our public events, where you can learn more about what we do.
