So, Do You Want to Manage a Million Dollars?
FINA 4480 / FINA 6480
This course is designed to give students a hands-on experience at performing investment research, investing money, and managing
a portfolio prior to entering the work place. It is available for three credits in the Fall. However, the course encompasses
both Fall and Spring semesters. Students graduating at the end of Fall semester can take the class but will have a larger
workload than two-semester students. MBA students are also welcome to participate (FINA 6480). Students will be managing
a $1,000,000 fund at the UT Foundation and the fiduciary responsibilities for managing these funds will be stressed. Students
are expected to generate investment ideas, research investment opportunities, and make recommendations based on their analysis.
It is the student’s responsibility to initiate ideas and to recommend specific investment actions. Students will be expected
to prepare reports to an advisory board that will include professional portfolio managers and to make presentations to the
board’s finance committee on a quarterly basis. Students will be held to the same standards as professional portfolio managers.
