Apply to the Bowden Investment Group

Students in the Bowden Investment Group (BIG) have the unique opportunity to manage a real stock portfolio and gain hands-on experience in financial analysis and portfolio management. Members of the BIG are a select group of high-achieving students majoring in Finance and Banking. Students are selected to participate in the BIG based on their academic standing, their finance background, and their interest in investments and financial analysis. Students do not simply enroll in the classes; rather, students apply and then only the best candidates are invited to join. The application process begins early in the spring semester. An interview is required as part of the application process.
