Issues in Running a Student-Managed Investment Fund with Part-Time Students

John Clark


Managing a student-managed investment fund course populated with part-time students that have full-time jobs presents some unique challenges. This paper discusses these challenges and makes suggestions related to course structure and the role of the faculty advisor. Combating the problem of overly distracted (or overly burdened) students requires a course structure that provides periodic deadlines to hold students accountable for learning in an active learning environment. Faculty advisors should be cognizant of potential distractions that might exist for students that have worked all day, and create an environment that helps students stay engaged in the student fund activities.
