REMINDER: meeting today at 4 PM in ENT204. See you there! 😊
This is the page for the George Mason Investment Club at GMU. Please like this page if you are interested in investing or are going to George Mason University and want to participate!
Mason Investment Club was founded during the Fall of 2008 by three students, who showed a strong interest in investing. Since then, the MIC has grown significantly in many aspects. We are consistently aiming in enhancing the member experience and making a lasting impact on the community. In the near future we aim to put together more competition teams, network with local finance organizations and companies, and develop our own fund to better teach our members the fundamentals of investing. The leaders of the Mason Investment Club are also working diligently for more resources to better prepare students for careers in business and finance, and was an integral part in encouraging the school to purchase ten Bloomberg terminals. In the long run, we hope to become a reputable organization not just across the George Mason campus, but nationally as a well-established investment organization.
