Where Faith and Finance Meet

The Meraki Program is an intensive and highly selective program designed for top Christian students from across the United States with a passion for finance and plans to pursue a career in New York City upon graduation. The program combines a financial internship at a top NYC firm, with field trips to key financial institutions, a Christian mentor for each student, and a college class on Faith and Finance. The class will discuss ways that the Christian faith intersects with Finance and the Financial Services industry in NYC.

About the Program
