Business students buy real world experience: Senior fellows manage investment portfolio with portion of university endowment
At a university where engaged learning is a primary focus, finding the means to manage an investment portfolio as an undergraduate can be a difficult task for students aspiring to be professionals in the financial services industry. But such an opportunity is afforded to a select group of students at Elon University — the business fellows — some of which selected the school largely for the portfolio management program. David Campbell, a senior double major in finance and accounting, was one of those students attracted to Elon because of the opportunity to manage a portion of the university’s endowment. Campbell is one of eight business fellows enrolled in the two-semester senior investment course.
