On first glance, Stanford may seem vaguely apathetic towards fashion. A quick look around the quad certainly reveals the Stanford student uniform — a free t-shirt from the most recent career fair and a pair of sweatpants likely bought at the campus bookstore. Even so, a growing number of students are interested in the fashion industry — and pushing to change campus accordingly.
Stanford Women in Business
Stanford Women in Business (SWIB) – a student group dedicated to providing opportunities for women interested in pursuing careers in business – underwent fundamental changes this year from event scheduling to expanding its audience to both genders.
Despite Stanford’s proliferation of both finance-oriented student groups and accounting and finance course offerings, the University’s lack of an undergraduate finance, accounting or business major is not unusual, according to professors and University administrators.
The top three competitors in this year’s Stanford Women in Business (SWIB) Fantasy Stock Exchange (FSE) used a trading algorithm for the first time in the competition’s history, allowing them to make thousands of trades and achieve daily rates of return above 20 percent.
