Gerald Boyles Student Investment Fund
Students using real money to gain real experience
Like most business colleges from around the world, the E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration wants their graduates to find success outside of the classroom. In order for this to be achieved, students need a platform to apply what they've learned in the classroom in the business world. This is where programs similar to The Gerald Boyles Student Investment Fund can be an influential learning experience for those who wish to pursue a career in the fast-paced and ever-changing world of finance.
The investment fund was created to honor the teaching legacy of Gerald Boyles, a retired CCU finance professor who had a profound effect on his students both as a professor and a mentor. The purpose of the fund is to give students the opportunity to implement their financial knowledge of various financial markets by using real money to make real investments.
The student-managed investment fund is a prestigious opportunity for business students interested in investments. The program is directly supervised by the Department of Finance and Economics and is governed by an investment advisory board comprising faculty, administrators and investment professionals. These academic and business leaders share their expertise and interact with students during student investment presentations.
The investment fund offers dedicated, motivated and well-prepared students the opportunity to engage various investment strategies and decisions in managing real money in real time.
