Students manage over $300,000 of MC’s endowment
Thanks to a resolution in 2011 by the college Board of Trustees to retain the spring investments class to manage $100,000, the portfolio management experience has been taken to a whole new level. “It’s real money with real consequences and I think that’s going to elevate the level of seriousness that students put into this exercise,” Rod Gieselman, associate professor of business, said. Because of the student’s success, the class is now responsible for managing over $300,000 of the college’s endowment.
