Wall Street Journal Club


Inspired by the 2018 NYC trip, Professor Max Dolinsky and MFS Alum Sam Bodman started a club that meets at Ponder Coffee at 7:30 am Monday through Friday to read a print copy of the Wall Street Journal and discuss markets, careers, and life. We thank the many alumni, recruiters, and even CMU President Bob Davies for dropping by to discuss current events, markets, careers, and life in general.

WSJ club adapts to the COVID19 crisis and goes virtual on Webex! 
Spring 2020 Guest Schedule


For the rest of the Spring 2020 Semester, CMU has taken all classes online due to the COVID-19 outbreak across the United States. In order to adapt, the Wall Street Journal Club now meets up every morning at 7:00 am to read the Journal and discuss the current events via WebEx. Even when miles, and states apart, we still feature guests from various positions within the financial world. This virus may have separated its members, but the lessons learned, ideas shared, and value added by the Club has only grown since its virtual transition.

If you'd like to join our daily Wall Street Journal Club meeting please contact Andrew Gawryk at gawry1al@cmich.edu or connect with Professor Brad Taylor.
