Experience a real class project using the technology in the Investment Center. Learn firsthand how students use the software and technology tools to identify assets for an investment portfolio construction assignment.
The Investment Center was founded in 1998 as a groundbreaking pedagogical tool. It was designed to convey important lessons and allow students to improve their understanding of simple or complicated concepts and problems. It's a fancy way of saying that we use the Investment Center to teach and learn important concepts. In order to deepen the experiences of Business Students, the Investment Center integrates the professional tools of industry (software and databases) into the curriculum of the school. The Investment Center translates learning objectives, course goals, and student projects into practical knowledge.
