One of the recent buzz words in higher education these days is “experiential learning.” At the Carlson School, the CFE has been teaching students for 15 years, in an experiential way, how to manage a real portfolio. As the CFE Program continues to develop, thanks to our dedicated participants and over 400 alumni, we continue to examine how we can continue to be a national leader.

Over the course of 2014-15, we will be taking a critical review of our curriculum and listen to the business community on how we can teach students to apply fundamental knowledge in a constantly changing financial environment. I welcome your input in this regard and hope that you will consider responding to surveys, questions, etc. over the upcoming academic year.

Thank you for your continued support… and go Gophers!
