One example of the innovative and hands-on approach of the Greehey School of Business’ Finance and Risk Management program is the student-managed investment portfolio. Finance and Risk Management majors have the opportunity to manage millions of dollars of the Greehey School’s endowment. These are real dollars, not a simulation. Management of the fund takes place in an actual trading room in the School. Numerous Bloomberg computer terminals are available throughout the School for student certification and research, ensuring that our Finance and Risk Management majors are prepared to be immediate difference-makers in both their internships and careers.
