The Aristotle experience provides University of St. Thomas students with real money to manage, and requires serious dedication, focus and time commitment. The students selected for this course will inherit the investment portfolio from the current year's class on September 1 of the fall semester in which they begin the program and will be responsible for the performance of the fund until August 31 the following spring.
The class meets weekly throughout the academic year, including J-term, and some students will continue to meet weekly over the summer to manage the fund. Students selected each spring for the upcoming school year are encouraged to observe the current year's class over the summer to prepare for ownership of the portfolio.
While the Aristotle students do not take home any portfolio profits, they will gain strong research, analytical and presentation skills while working directly with accomplished leaders in the Twin Cities investment community.
The application process for the Aristotle Fund program typically opens early in March to select students for the following academic year, with the class beginning in September.
