The Graduate Student Managed Fund (GSMF) is a great opportunity for students pursuing career in capital market investing and portfolio management. In 2010, Professor Atreya Chakraborty, PhD of the College of Management had fundraised $20,000 to be managed by the class. The primary objective of the Fund is to provide participating students an opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience in security research, valuation of assets, asset allocation, and portfolio management. The fund serves as a perfect platform to help students combine the knowledge they have acquired in the classroom, their own professional experience, the lectures from professional guest speakers, and the resources and networks the school has to offer. The fund allows students to experience the real world fiduciary responsibility that comes with managing an investment portfolio as well as the high level of attention to detail and analysis.
