Through two investing groups, Virginia Tech students, primarily in the Pamplin College of Business, are managing more than $10 million of Virginia Tech's endowment.
Unlike most other student-investor programs in universities across the country, Virginia Tech’s students run the funds on their own — not as part of a course — with guidance from faculty advisers. Organized in teams by function, students research, discuss, and execute their trades. They recruit and train new members and give annual oral and written reports to the Virginia Tech Foundation.
