The Tepper Opportunity Fund has been established to provide students at the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University an environment for experiential learning in investment management. The Fund is student managed and serves as a platform to integrate course work in finance, accounting and economics with practical skills in security analysis, asset selection, portfolio allocation and business communication.
The Fund’s primary investment objective is capital preservation, with the secondary objective being capital appreciation. To meet these objectives the Fund will actively invest in stocks and exchange-traded funds to outperform its benchmark.
The Fund accepts applications for Analysts each September. Additionally, the Fund will hold stock pitch events once per mini which are open to the entire Tepper community.
