Frequently Asked Questions

I have no background in finance or business administration, can I participate?

Club membership is open to any student, regardless of their course of study. Applicants will be judged by their motivation and interest in financial markets and investing. Our junior analyst training will ensure that every member has a sufficient financial knowledge to participate in our investing activities. However, the selection for our external events is usually based on our partner's recruitment criteria.

Do I need to apply for events? How do I apply?

We mostly organize application-oriented events. Therefore, participation is limited to an adequate number of people. Application will be open until a few days prior to the event. Make sure to apply online if you wish to participate in any of our events. Please check the event description to learn about any limitations, application (documents) and deadlines.

How important is diversity to the TU Investment Club?

We highly appreciate that we attract members from all genders, from diverse nationalities and from a variety of professional backgrounds. We feel that a broad range of personalities is an important asset for both our social Club life and within the investment departments. We understand ourselves as a contributor in overcoming finance stereotypes and we are thus happy to welcome all kinds of finance enthusiasts.

What is your primary language of communication?

Our meetings and events are mostly held in German as most participants are native speakers. However, we will also communicate in English internally if necessary. For our public events, you will always be informed about the language in the event description. Sometimes our sponsors and event partners require us to communicate in English.

Why is there no German website?

English is the major language in finance as it is in a lot of areas of global importance. Most jobs in the industry require employees to be fluent in English and possibly go abroad for business purposes. Our website is completely in English just as the majority of the industry's websites.
