Take Control of a $3.6 Million University Endowment

Would you like to graduate with experience equivalent to running a small investment company? Each year, select Bucknell seniors and second-semester juniors have the opportunity to be part of the Student Managed Investment Fund (SMIF), which manages about $3.6 million in real University funds. This intensive capstone experience allows students to apply their knowledge of portfolio management, asset allocation, accounting, economics, business strategy and statistics. They also sharpen their negotiation, communications and leadership skills by working together closely to devise investment strategies and present their positions to a committee on the Board of Trustees. Graduates, who often go on to careers in financial services, frequently credit SMIF as their most powerful learning experience at Bucknell.
