To engage students in an educational and interactive atmosphere that promotes personal, occupational, and academic growth through active securities investing.
STEP 1: LEARN
Attend your first general meeting, a symposium, or join an analyst group. There are a variety of programs to help students learn to invest, with or without prior knowledge. General meetings feature weekly market updates, portfolio discussions, and a lecture series on interesting topics in finance. USIT also offers monthly symposiums to help students further develop their financial skills and weekly analyst groups to learn in smaller, more collaborative setting.
STEP 2: INVEST
Apply your newly-learned skills to an actual investment pitch. Teams of general members work to select an investment, research its merits, and then pitch the investment to the rest of the general membership. If passed, the investment of their choosing will be added to the portfolio.
STEP 3: MASTER
Begin to lead pitch teams, and build valuable leadership experience on our board of directors or in our Strategic Capital Group. Senior members pass along their knowledge and experiences to the next generation of USIT investors. Now you can go on to ace your finance classes, win national competitions, and land prestigious internships and full-time jobs.
