If you are a Barry University student and are interested in joining the Student Managed Investment Fund (SMIF) please complete the form below and email to SMIF@barry.edu.
The application process is very competitive as we seek to select the most qualified and committed applicants from a large pool of candidates. The more finance knowledge you have the better your chances will be, so follow the markets and take as many finance classes as possible. If your finance knowledge is low, but you still want to be a member, demonstrate other attributes you can bring to SMIF and show your level of commitment through a well thought out application.
Applications are open to both graduate and undergraduate students. Those students wishing to be Fund Managers must be in good standing with the University and Andreas School of Business. Applicants must be MBA candidates or at least enrolled in FIN-352 (Fundamentals of Security Analysis) if an undergraduate student.
General membership is open to all Barry students that have completed ACC-201 and ECO-201. Having all members complete these two classes will ensure that students have at least basic knowledge in economic theory and financial statement structure.
