Fourteen students in the UW-Eau Claire Student Investment Management Program will attend the Redefining Investment Strategy Education (R.I.S.E.) Forum, March 27-29, 2008 at the University of Dayton in Dayton, Ohio. Eau Claire students will be accompanied by Dr. Ray Hughes, coordinator, UW-Eau Claire Student Investment Management Program.
The R.I.S.E. conference, which is co-sponsored by the University of Dayton and the United Nations Global Compact, brings students, faculty and investment leaders together in an interactive learning environment to discuss a variety of finance issues, such as the economy, the bond and stock markets, the Federal Reserve Board perspective, corporate governance and real estate.
Last year’s conference drew 1700 participants representing 218 colleges and universities from 58 countries.
