The Driehaus Capital Management Summer Investment Challenge is an online learning experience, free of charge, for rising high school seniors with an expressed interest in investment markets.
During the course of one week, students work in groups which are matched with a DePaul undergraduate finance student. Annually, the program hosts 20 students and consists of five three-hour online sessions.
The sessions include lectures, guest speakers and hands-on experience in Bloomberg terminals, Excel and data analysis. After completing the course work, students pitch stock proposals to a panel of professionals and receive expert feedback.
The Driehaus Capital Management Summer Investment Challenge is led by Professor of Finance
Vahap Uysal, whose research focuses on capital structure, mergers and acquisitions and corporate social responsibility.
He has also coached a student team that went on to win first place at the Texas Portfolio Symposium in 2013, and has taught a popular investment seminar that uses an actual stock portfolio to challenge students to analyze securities and recommend what to buy and sell.
