Join Duke in Chicago alumni, parents, students and friends as we welcome Dean of Trinity College Valerie Ashby and faculty and students from the Duke in Chicago Finance program.

Dean Ashby  assumed her role on July 1, 2015. Since then, she has been an energetic force behind Duke’s commitment to providing extraordinary undergraduate and graduate educational experiences; to fostering excellence in teaching, research, and service; to creating opportunities for faculty leadership and mentoring; and to encouraging diversity as a driver of creativity. Whether through an extraordinary classroom experience or immersive mentored-research project, she strives to ensure there is something for all Duke students who wish to challenge themselves and transform the world.

The Duke in Chicago Finance program is a four-week, one-course summer program for Duke students with career interests in finance and business. The Duke Global Education Office for Undergraduates (GEO) administers the program in conjunction with the Duke Financial Economics Center and the Duke University Economics Department. In addition to in-class lectures, discussion, and projects, the core learning opportunities include guest lectures, mainly by Duke alumni working in finance and business in the Chicago area, and visits to financial firms as well as historical and cultural sites. Students engage with alumni working in a variety of areas within the finance field, including corporate finance, private equity, asset management, investment banking, sales and trading, hedge funds, and financial management in the non-profit sector.

Special thanks to Steve Potter ’79, P’14 and Ann Potter '79, P'14 and Northern Trust for hosting this event.


There is no cost to attend this event. Hors d'oeuvres and beverages will be served.
