A School of Business alumnus invested in the future of Ithaca students—literally.
This generous, anonymous donation will help create an investment track for finance students. It is also supporting a new hedge fund course that gives students the chance to manage a hedge fund with real money.
“The class helps students learn about what makes hedge funds different, functionally and legally, from other investment company structures,” says Mary Ellen Zuckerman, dean of the business school. “Since there is real money tied to the class, students will be able to generate and put to work appropriate investment ideas.”
The new course sets IC apart from other schools by giving it three undergraduate courses managing real money in three separate funds—equity, fixed income, and hedge.
“Having a hedge fund class rounds out the investment experience for students interested in careers in this field,” says Zuckerman.
