The Carlson Funds Enterprise (CFE) allows MBA and undergraduate finance students the opportunity to manage approximately $35 million of real investment money. Guided by two professional directors and two academic advisors, student participants take total control of the money management process. Not only does the program allow students to learn about real-word investment management, but participants are able to earn competitive returns as well.
