Forget about pretending you are a fund manager. You can step into the real role by enrolling in FIN 410, Principles of Investments 2.

The Ball State University Foundation has entrusted finance students to manage and grow a portion of their portfolio. As a member of the investment team, you’ll be responsible for the portfolio, including securities analysis and driving the strategy behind the fund's performance.

Rely on your knowledge of investments to carefully shepherd the foundation's money. Learn how to use a wide range of stock-valuation techniques and investment strategies. Improve your teamwork skills in group stock presentations. Hone your skills for career advancement and personal responsibility. Deal with the genuine pressure of managing actual money.

Did you know? Our SMIF students ranked second in the Core Investment Style Category at the RISE Symposium in 2013 and third in the Value Investment Style Category in 2014.

This reality course is open to all qualified and interested students.
