DESCRIPTION
The Asset Management Lab is an experiential learning course that gives Kellogg students the opportunity to be placed in a quarter-long internship with a local or national asset management firm. Sponsor firms include all types of asset managers: hedge funds, mutual funds, pensions, endowments, family offices, RIAs and wealth management firms, and others. Students will be exposed to the day-to-day work of the firm and will be assigned a project of the firm's choice that generally pertains to its investment process. Students will rank their preferences but placement must be accepted by the sponsor firm and is not guaranteed. Enrollment in the course is by application only. This course may not be dropped once the student has been matched with a project or sponsor. Prerequisite FINC-431-0 (or equivalent) may be taken concurrently. Students planning to take FINC-431-0 are invited to apply. Please contact Prof. Ordway (philip.ordway@kellogg.northwestern.edu) to a request a prerequisite waiver in order to apply.
