Virtual NY Trek

Gonzaga University students attend the New York career trek

This marks the 14th year of our annual New York Trek program which will be held virtually at the end of this month. Students with an interest in careers in finance and investment banking will have an opportunity learn from University leaders with extensive careers in field, gain a deeper understanding of the New York Stock Exchange and network with a wide variety of alumni professionals living in NYC.

While the events below are designed to benefit current students who have applied to participate, we welcome alumni to observe and consider partnering with us in future Trek programming. We encourage all alumni and friends who are living in or have experience working in the New York Tri-State Area to actively participate in the 4:10 p.m. – 5:10 p.m. Networking Social event.
