FOCUS Program

This December, Jane Street is excited to host its FOCUS program in partnership with the Student Freedom Initiative (SFI) and exclusively for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) undergraduates from *select institutions.

Over the course of two days, you will participate in classes, discussions, and activities that are structured to provide a broad overview of the work Jane Street’s trading, software development, and business development teams do. There will also be opportunities to connect virtually with other attendees and employees from across the firm.

This program is for HBCU undergraduate students, inclusive of first-years through juniors. It does not require a prior knowledge of finance, only an interest in seeing what a career in finance, technology, and at Jane Street might look like.
