Philanthropy
Scale and Coin seeks to drive positive impact in the community in addition to our professional and social endeavors. Each semester, we hold a volunteering event to support Urban Ministries. Scale & Coin also has a strong relationship with Reinvestment Partners, maximizing our contribution to the Durham community. Scale & Coin’s emphasis on business and entrepreneurship aligns with Reinvestment Partners’ mission to support affordable housing, community development, and job development training in North Carolina.
Professional Development
Scale & Coin regularly hosts visiting speakers from top firms across the nation and has held networking events with companies like Berkshire Hathaway and Capital One exclusively for Scale & Coin’s members. With an established network of alumni dedicated to supporting current members, current Scale & Coin members immediately enter recruiting with a leg up. Members have claimed top prizes in many of the nation’s most competitive competitions, including the Hult Prize, the Harvard Financial Competition, and the BCG Case Competition.
New Member Education
Each semester, Scale & Coin takes a new training class after our recruitment process. During our training process, new members will learn the business fundamentals from a wide range of industries. Our education process is designed to prepare members for work in any industry, including finance, tech, consulting, entrepreneurship and more. New members will also get a chance to bond with their training class through weekly events like cooking contests, movie nights, and bowling.
Community
While Scale & Coin is a professional organization, we also have strong traditions that make our community what it is. During the year Scale hosts a variety of social events for members including retreats, dinners, and events with their families to bond. After joining Scale, all members are placed into families, where younger members are given an upperclassman big that will stay with them both throughout at their Duke experience, and afterwards. Scale & Coin also has a variety of spheres which gives members an opportunity to grow closer and get mentorship from older students in field that they are interested in, including tech, banking, private equity, entrepreneurship, and more.
Diversity
Scale & Coin champions various forms of diversity within the organization such as ethnic diversity, gender diversity, and academic diversity. Over the past few years, Scale & Coin has instituted initiatives such as a diversity panel and women's events during recruitment and the creation of internal affinity groups to voice their concerns to show its commitment to diversity. With 19 different countries and 16 majors represented as well as underrepresented minorities and women increasingly attaining representation, Scale & Coin is leading the Duke business community into a more inclusive future.
