Business school expands investment theme for students; Grant will give Indiana University undergrads a shot at managing real money
Indianapolis Business Journal, Sept. 18 -- Its one thing to read college textbooks about consequences of investment decisions, but quite another to experience the results using real money. With that premise in mind, two well-known wealth managers in Indianapolis have donated $100,000 to Indiana University to help undergraduate finance majors see the impact of their choices. Dave Knall and Jeff Cohen, managing directors of the East 96th Street office of St. Louis-based Stifel Nicolas and both IU graduates and boosters, wanted to extend to undergraduates an opportunity long enjoyed by some of the university's elite MBA students.
