Penn State Derivative Association

PSDA is a club that employs a 6-week long education to its members in order for them to obtain knowledge about financial markets. Eventually, PSDA members will strive to become lead analysts inside of Penn State Asset Management Group.

Members of PSDA can go to general body meetings every Monday to learn more about financial markets. These educations will include teachings about futures, options, credit default swaps, etc. There will also be breakout sessions on Sundays to get more specific information about various sectors in the C/D market like oil, agriculture, and energy.

The end goal of our executives is to make everyone in PSDA better whether it be in financial markets or just an overall better worker and make them employable.
