The Frank Batten Investment Fund

A full-year elective for second-year MBA students, the Batten Fund is an exclusive opportunity to learn the challenges and rewards of investing in equities with a real investment portfolio. Selected students will:

  • Work as a fund analyst alongside a designated portfolio manager.
  • Gain hands-on, resume building experience researching stocks, developing an investment thesis, and completing a valuation analysis.
  • Receive valuable guidance and insights from the School of Business's professional team of Executive Partners.
  • Get unparalleled access to leading financial analysts, investment consultants, portfolio managers, speakers and other industry experts.
The Batten Fund was made possible by a donation from former Landmark Communications Chairman, Frank Batten, Sr. and his wife, Jane Batten.
