Can you understand a company so well that you see
something others don’t?  Can you turn
your research into gold?  Do you have the
nerve to stick your neck out when even the king thinks you are wrong?  Can you dazzle a round table of accomplished
investors with original work?  Do you
have what it takes to be a professional investor?  This course challenges you to answer these
questions.

Intellectually, the course bends towards long-term,
value-oriented, fundamental investing. It offers a pragmatic rather than
theoretical perspective.  Weekly homework
assignments and participation underpin the class, including: discussion of
readings; workshop-style presentation of research work; and interaction with
guest speakers.

The class is a real world experience and an opportunity
to interact with and present your work to highly accomplished CEOs, CFOs,
Analysts, and Portfolio Managers - in many ways similar to a summer
internship.  You will be expected to work
hard and be professional.  Needless to
say this is a demanding class and can be overwhelming if you are not prepared
to dedicate significant time and energy to it. 
It will be limited to 10 students to ensure quality of experience for
all involved.
