Learn through real-time investment
AT A GLANCE
3 - WEEK
Founded in 1998, the Brandeis Investment Club was created to provide the university's highest quality investing experience for undergraduate students interested in pursuing careers in finance.
We aim to educate our community about markets and investing principles through the collaborative management of a real portfolio. Over the course of several years, our Analysts have had the opportunity to invest real-time using a portion allocated to us by the university’s endowment. We follow a process developed by club leaders in conjunction with industry experts and the Brandeis Investment Committee.
Through our coveted New Analyst Training Program, we provide our newest members with the ability to learn how to invest using the basic technical valuation methods of fundamental analysis. We also give our members the opportunity to participate in career-oriented trainings, networking events, and industry presentations which propels them to be placed in highly competitive entry-level jobs in finance.
In collaboration with industry professionals, Brandeis faculty, and our club members, we are continuing to build an incredible organization, fully devoted to its members’ success.
INVESTMENTS ACROSS 7 INDUSTRIES
OUR THREE PILLARS
We run on three-week business cycles. Every 3rd week, the club hosts an Investment Committee meeting, during which the club Executive Board and guest professors and/or industry experts listen in on stock pitches conducted by Analyst teams, and approved pitches get added to our $25,000 university investment portfolio.
We hold weekly educational training sessions as part of the New Analyst Training Program where club members learn finance fundamentals and various valuation techniques used in stock pitches. These trainings are specially developed and executed by our Vice President of Education to meet the unique needs of each incoming cohort.
A major focus of our club is to advance the careers of club members looking to break into finance. We host frequent events throughout the semester such as guest speaker sessions with industry professionals, networking opportunities with successful Brandeis alumni in the finance industry, and industry treks. We also provide resume and interview workshops.
