Leadership. Community. Impact

Learning doesn’t have to end when you exit the classroom. Want to create your own venture? Gain leadership experience? Manage an investment portfolio or a marketing campaign for a Baltimore-area client? CLE’s experiential learning opportunities allow students to practice and perfect the skills gained in the classroom through real-world, hands-on projects.

I gained practical experience from being a course assistant within the CLE and an executive board member of the Marshal L. Salant Student Investment Team. These roles helped differentiate my application from other candidates and allowed for good talking points in finance interviews.
