What Sets UCM Apart

Finance

  • Bloomberg Professional Service is the industry-leading platform for news data, analytical tools and research to make informed investment decisions. UCM is one of two state universities in Missouri to offer students access to 12 terminals with the Bloomberg service. Thanks to the generosity of Donn G. Forbes (Class of '52), students have the opportunity to "learn about making decisions with integrity" through a hands-on and engaged learning environment. The Forbes Center for Financial Services is equipped with state-of-the-art digital technology that allows students to perform detailed investment analyses.
  • CFA Institute Research Challenge promotes the best practices in equity research through hands-on mentoring and intensive training in company analysis and presentation skills. UCM students learn from leading industry experts and compete with students from the region’s top finance programs.

  • The Student Managed Investment Fund provides students an invaluable hands-on opportunity to learn equity research, security selection, and portfolio management skills, by managing an investment portfolio worth more than $600,000.
