Hands-on Market Experience – Before Graduation

Our best graduate and undergraduate finance students work with real market forces to invest a $1.75 million portfolio benefitting two organizations. Experience the real risks and rewards professionals face every day. You’ll execute trades, present proposals, discover investment styles and learn the merits of sound asset diversification. Students make all the decisions.

With this exceptional experience under your belt, you can graduate to a successful Wall Street career just like hundreds of TCU EIF alumni.

Our History
