The Cardinal Fund is an applied asset management program offered by the Economics department in conjunction with the Graduate School of Business and Stanford Student Enterprises (SSE). The course is offered for three units, and students are expected to commit to the program for six consecutive quarters, however, students who would like to study abroad will be able to do so. Students will receive a total of 18 units during the two year program, and 10 units can be counted as elective credit for the Economics major.
Over the course of the two-year program, students act as a wealth manager for $1 million of SSE's endowment through investing in publicly traded stocks under the supervision of faculty members in the Graduate School of Business. No finance experience is required. The program begins with a finance bootcamp intended to teach students the skills necessary to select stocks and manage a portfolio. After the bootcamp ends, students prepare a risk management and portfolio strategy plan to present to SSE's Board of Directors. When this plan is approved, students begin making investments.
