Students at the forum.


The University of Dayton and United Nations Global Compact RISE Forum will offer participants the chance to network with the portfolio managers and directors of some of the nation’s most successful applied investment management programs. Regardless of whether your school is affiliated with a student-managed portfolio, all faculty and students can share ideas, experiences and best practices concerning investment strategy education throughout the course of the two-and-a-half day event.

Opening day of the conference provides attendees with ringside seats as nationally known Wall Street experts, corporate executives and financial media personalities discuss the economy, the markets and the future of the industry. Students have the opportunity to guide those panel discussions by asking questions from the conference floor. Additionally, RISE attendees will be privileged to get a glimpse of the Federal Reserve perspective during our Federal Reserve Bank President Panel.

Breakout sessions, presented by industry professionals, examine a variety of investment-related topics that supplement classroom knowledge and provide participants with a glimpse into real-world asset management.

The RISE Forum expands on the concept of academic program development by offering attending faculty the opportunity to present research findings, best practices, teaching innovations and more during a faculty-only session on Saturday morning.
