About Us

A Vibrant Learning Environment


Centered in the heart of Silicon Valley, The Banking and Investment Association is an undergraduate organization at San José State University, working closely with the faculty and its office members to enhance the undergraduate experience and meet the needs of the student body. The organization was created in the Spring of 2009 as the Banking and Financial Services Club. After merging with Spartan Investors, a new club was made. Our main goal is to promote activities that benefit the financial community, students, and faculty. In doing so we are able to develop strong leaders in finance.
