“The Finance & Risk Management program at St. Mary’s transforms students into high caliber professionals. I was provided the tools and capabilities to take a risk-centered approach to finance, which ultimately allowed me to achieve my goal of being a financial analyst at a Fortune 500 company.” – Rogelio Hernandez (B.B.A ’15)
One example of the innovative and hands-on approach of the Greehey School’s Finance and Risk Management program is the student-managed investment portfolio. Finance and Risk Management majors have the opportunity to manage a real $1.8 million investment portfolio. Management of the fund takes place in a simulated trading room in the Albert B. Alkek Building. Numerous Bloomberg computer terminals are available across campus for student certification and research.
