Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- UMD students in the Financial Markets program received a substantial gift from Wells Fargo.

Representatives from Wells Fargo presented a check of $75,000 to support the UMD Financial Markets Lab in the Labovitz School of Business and Economics (LSBE).

The gift maintains the strong relationship between Wells Fargo Duluth, UMD and LSBE, and the lab will continue to be named the Wells Fargo Financial Markets Lab.

The UMD Financial Markets Program is one of the largest undergraduate student-run funds in the country.

In addition to Financial Markets Program funding, Wells Fargo will offer three paid summer internships and additional practicum opportunities for LSBE students.

The Financial Markets Program allows students to apply fundamental, technical and quantitative analysis techniques and encourages them to develop their own methodology towards analyzing the financial markets.
