The Student Finance Association (SFA) at CSUN is an organization dedicated to supporting students and alumni who seek careers in financial services.
Our mission is twofold: to develop highly motivated students through a variety of innovative events, and to build a personal and professional network that continues after graduation, supporting members throughout their careers.

What We Do For Our Members
Students who become active members of the SFA will have access to workshops on Excel, Financial Modeling, and Programming. Typically, we team up with partner organizations to provide this training at low to no cost.
+ Finance Lab
Our members form groups that compete in national finance and consulting case competitions. Our students also participate in a "Finance Lab", where we provide financial consulting for entrepreneurs and small businesses.
We make it a priority to educate our members on the vast world of finance. We also make an effort to build relationships with both regional and national firms. We have an SFA-member only job board which consists of all local firms that have openings for both internships and full-time positions.
Interview + Resume Prep
We provide a multitude of resources (like templates) for our members to form and improve upon their resumes. We also guide students on common interview preparation techniques, ensuring they fully demonstrate their talent.
We find it incredibly important to seek, establish, and maintain relationships with our strong alumni network. The SFA holds various social events for its members to take part in. Giving back to the community is important to SFA members.
(CFA & General)
We also educate our member base on the importance of attaining professional certifications early in your career through information sessions. Those who are studying for the 'CFA' exam, for example, will be able to form study groups to help each other succeed.
A Message From Leadership
Thank you for your interest in CSUN's Student Finance Association (SFA).
We are CSUN's only student-led organization specializing in finance. It is our primary goal to educate, develop, and engage our members so they will possess the network and tools needed to succeed and lead in their careers. By cultivating a personal and professional network, one can ensure opportunities extending far beyond a Matador's tenure at CSUN. At SFA, we aim to help dedicated students achieve their immediate and long-term career goals.
Our board consists of a carefully selected group of dedicated and ambitious student leaders here at CSUN. These individuals are some of the most driven and goal-oriented people on our campus. We ran for this position because we were inspired by the resilience of the people we've met through the SFA. CSUN students, particularly members of the SFA board, are a shining example of success in the face of adversity.
It is an honor for us to serve as President and Vice President for this powerful organization. We hope to serve the members in such a way that allows us to break even more ground this semester. We will continue to work hard to illuminate opportunities for dedicated students.
We welcome you to join us.
