This course helps students develop superior investment ideas by conducting creative, value-added research. Students act as hedge fund analysts by working through an intense research process with the objective of developing strong conviction around their investment conclusions. A primary, in-the-trenches research approach is employed; strong grasp of Accounting/Finance is essencial. Each student will analyze one or two companies in-depth all semester. The professors and guest investment professionals discuss student ideas and share their investment philosophies.
The final exam is a presentation of student investment ideas to a panel of prominent hedge fund managers.
