Students invest real money in finance course

Fred Dickson, the Chief Investment Strategist from DA Davidson, spoke at USU tonight. He emphasized the importance of gaining experience in the field before you graduate from college. In fact, one of the big reasons for his visit was to reward the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business as a result of investments by a group of students.

Students in Paul Fjeldsted’s Investing Practicum class have a unique opportunity to invest real money. DA Davidson donated $50,000 for this purpose. When the investments work out, DA Davidson cuts a check to the school. Tonight, Mr. Dickson presented the school with a check for $1,500. Before presenting the check, Mr. Dickson praised the efforts of the school in promoting real-life involvement.
