7 Websites That Every Finance Student Should Know About

When I walked into my first business class freshman year (20 minutes early) I was brutally unprepared. All I knew about business was from dinner conversations with my family, a little bit of news when I couldn't avoid watching it, and the fact that accounting and finance were both, you know, things. As a third-year business student now, here are a list of some apps, websites, you name it! that could have definitely saved my back from the start!

1. Wall Street Journal

A given. The WSJ is dense, but sometimes the best way to go about reading it is looking at the top news in the US & top news in the world sections on the front page. From there, if anything sparks your interest, go straight to that page! A better option than the paper is the app, which sends you updates in real time!

2. NY Times App

Along those lines, the New York Times also has an app that regularly sends updates. It's easy to use and it goes without saying that the name is highly respected.

3. Morning Brew

Arguably my favorite. This is the absolute easiest way to keep up with all business news. It's a brief, 5 minute read that comes to your inbox each morning at 6 AM. It even discusses the latest moves in the market and recent M&A news.

4. Mergers & Inquisitions

So helpful if you're looking to get to Wall Street some day! M&I helps students prepare for interviews in all things Mergers & Acquisitions. The website also features interviews from bankers!

5. Twitter

Disclaimer: Just follow the right people.

6. TheSkimm

Another in-your-inbox morning newsletter! Unlike the Morning Brew, TheSkimm focuses less on business and more on world news. The newsletters are witty and an easy read early in the morning.

7. LinkedIn

If you can master LinkedIn, you are one step ahead of everyone else! Do's: bios, select accomplishments, and updating job status. Do not's: frequent & excessive updates, inappropriate photos, non business-related posts.

“Where are you Christmas? Why can’t I find you?”

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
