Noble Financial Capital Markets (Noble), Florida Atlantic University's College of Business (FAU) and MobileHelp announced today that they have sponsored forty students from FAU to attend NobleCon12; Noble Financial's 12th Annual Emerging Growth Investor Conference to be held at Club Med, Sandpiper Bay (45 minutes north of Florida's Palm Beach International Airport) January 17-20, 2016.
In cooperation with FAU, and with the generous financial support of Boca Raton-based MobileHelp, students from the FAU MSF Finance, Financial Analyst and the Executive & Professional MBA Programs will attend the entire NobleCon12 conference. To qualify, students of the Programs were given 40 statements relating to 40 of the 150 companies that will present at NobleCon12. They then had to match the statement with the company. The first 40 high-score submissions were selected to attend the Conference.
"Over the years we have worked very closely with the University, and in particular Dr. Rainford Knight from the Department of Finance," said Mark Pinvidic, Noble's Managing Partner. "He is always looking for innovative ways to advance the student experience and welcomed the opportunity when we presented it to him." The FAU Financial Equity Analyst Program was created by Dr. Knight with the input and ongoing support of Noble and its Director of Research, Michael Kupinski. Noble has had an active Intern Program since its creation and has employed several graduates of the Program.
"I have attended NobleCon for years and I view the event as the preeminent showcase for emerging growth companies; I would stack it up against even the biggest in the United States," said Dr. Knight. "We have had a handful of students attend in the past and I am absolutely thrilled to have such a large number going to NobleCon12. It's great to see companies like Noble and MobileHelp support the community to this level," he added.
