Matthew's pre-trip thoughts

Internship:  First Unity Financial Group, finance intern.  First Unity is a boutique financial advisory firm providing comprehensive financial services.  

Why are you participating in the Augustana in Australia program?  To gain real world insight into the finance industry.

What value do you hope to add back to the internship site?  To apply knowledge from all of the economics and finance classes that I have completed at Augustana.

What do you hope to learn on your internship?  I want to understand market indicators and technical data more in depth while also grasping the fundamentals of trading securities.

Where do you plan to travel during your term "down under"?   No plans.  I will see where the trip takes me.

What do you anticipate to be the highlight of your experience "down under"?  In addition to the internship, the highlight for me will be surfing.
