Dedication ceremonies are Wednesday afternoon for Baylor University’s Southwest Securities Markets Center, which the university says is equipped with cutting-edge technology identical to that found in the offices of the country’s top investment firms and financial institutions.
The opening, Baylor says, marks the start “of a new era in the Finance program at the Hankamer School of Business” where students in the Portfolio Practicum class, which started in 2001, manage a portfolio now valued at $6 million.
It's one of the largest student-managed portfolios in the country, Baylor says.
"This new facility, coupled with the Philip M. Dorr & Alumni Endowed Investment Fund, is a very mission-driven program," said Hankamer School of Business Dean Terry Maness.
"Our mission calls for us to engage students in active learning - this program really does that. You can read about it and you can write papers, but until you are actually managing real money and being held accountable for it - there's just no comparison."
