Why should you join?

R&A is a unique offering within LINC that aims toward educating the most ambitious students at Lund University within the field of finance. R&A acts as a complement to the academic approach taught by the university. Thus, R&A teaches the analysts how to apply theoretical concepts in a practical environment, and enables them to learn key skills applicable in finance that are not taught by their study discipline. In-part due to the knowledge gained through R&A, previous analysts have received offers from prestigious firms like Fidelity Investments, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, Deutsche Bank, ABG Sundal Collier, BNP Paribas, Nomura, SEB, Nordea and more.
