The Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is designed to introduce underclassmen to teamwork, public speaking, and presenting skills as an analyst, while also allowing upperclassmen to act as associates and have the opportunity to practice leadership skills by managing a team.


Analyst Experience

Analysts in the ELP will gain experience through a 10-week series of professional development workshops and team-based projects. The skill-building workshops cover a range of topics to help members succeed in a business setting, including resume critiques, interview best practices, Powerpoint skills, networking advice, and navigating various career paths. 


Participants will be able to apply the skills learned through a semester-long research project related to an industry of their choice. Each team of analysts is led by an associate, who has completed the program. Past presentation topics include: 


  • S&T: The Impact of Climate Change on Stock Valuation

  • Marketing: Analysis of Dove’s Body Positivity Campaign 

  • Investment Banking: Lululemon’s Acquisition of Mirror 

  • Venture Capital: NFT Industry Overview & Investment Pitch
