The Citadel FMA

The Citadel Financial Management Association (FMA) Chapter was established in 2012 by the formerly known Finance & Investment Club, a student-run organization committed to learning about the world of finance.

Mission: The Citadel FMA is committed to educating ourselves and others about concepts relevant to our financial futures via first-hand experiences with financial investments and interactions with professionals in the industry. By achieving our mission, we will effectively lead students to transition themselves from school and into the professional business environment.

[03/06/13]   "On March 20, 1843, the first Cadets reported to The Citadel on Marion Square. This date is celebrated today as Corps Day the official anniversary of the formation of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets."

Did you know? Until 1916, the only available academic majors were civil engineering, the sciences or a literary course. Business Administration was added as an elective course in 1924, followed by other electives that currently shape the academic environment as majors at our school.

Cadets will be enjoying dinner together for Corp Day this Thursday, so FMA will not be meeting.
