Eagle Investment Group
The Eagle Investment Group seeks to educate the next generation of investors for our changing world. By following the College of Business & Economics vision of teaching by doing and by studying, the Eagle Investment Group is giving our students the ultimate experiential learning opportunity where they make real decisions involving a portion of the university’s endowment.
The Eagle Investment Group is a collection of Finance majors that manage a portfolio of stocks through the combination of fundamental and technical analyses. In addition to dealing with issues seen by investing practitioners, this group also studies content that is valuable for post-graduation tests and designations such as the Series 7 for stockbrokers and dealers (FINRA), the CFP® and the CFA designation.
Our goal is simple: To give our members real world experience, while still maintaining a controlled environment to facilitate learning.
In addition to our amazing faculty, you’ll get the chance to learn from visiting professionals who share knowledge, experience, successes and failures. And, among our close-knit community, you’ll make friends and build important networks for the future.
- The Eagle Investment Group gives you the opportunity to learn on Wall Street and practice on Main Street.
- Research and analyze various sources of information using advanced analytic tools and databases.
- Make decisions in real-life scenarios
- Collaborate with teams to achieve the overall goal of increasing the Endowment Fund
The students gain real world investing experience, access to various investing programs and the opportunities to network with business professionals. Though the investing experience is why the students chose to enter the group, through it we get numerous chances to meet with different companies and professionals. The group also takes an annual spring trip to New York that is paid for by our fall golf outing fundraiser. While in New York the group gets the chance to tour various investing firms, talk to those who invest for a living and make connections that would otherwise be nearly impossible.
