"I had an incredible time on the finance trip to New York City! It was very beneficial hearing from some of the top financial analysts around the nation. After listening to the different topics presented, I have a sparked interest in commercial real estate lending, and real estate investment. This conference taught me so much about global asset management. I highly recommend it for any student pursuing a career in business!" Kyle Knierim
"The G.A.M.E Conference is an eye opener. You get to meet, interact, and attend lectures of some of the industry's top executives and leaders. The topics covered at the conference are diverse and provide knowledge that cannot be obtained in the classroom. The fact that the conference is being held in Manhattan is a bonus. There are so many things to do and choose from. It was definitely one of the best experiences I had at OC" Max Salitra
