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.
