Student managers have the opportunity to attend local and national conferences presented by top economic strategists and investment professionals. The Annual Redefining Investment Strategy Education (R.I.S.E.) Forum hosted by the University of Dayton is one such event. Selected management team members and faculty advisor Prof. John Venable heard from keynote speakers and panelists from Wall Street, corporate America, the financial media and the international community. Students are always a part of the conversation at R.I.S.E. and join the experts in economic forecasting through an on-site poll, with results shared almost immediately. The conference also offered breakout sessions on investments, career strategies, security analysis, portfolio management and an optional portfolio competition in addition to keynote presentations.
