At the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business, we have pioneered the hands-on study and understanding of professional asset management.
In 1993, a $250,000 contribution from our College of Business and Management Foundation established the Mayer Fund. The fund, which has grown to over $5 million through appreciation and outside contributions, is managed by a team consisting of a select group of second-year MBA students at the Smith School.
The Senbet Fund was founded in 2006 to give undergraduate students an experiential learning experience in portfolio management and equity analysis.
Maryland Smith’s Global Equity Fund is managed by 20 students in the school’s part-time MBA and master of finance programs. The global fund was established in 2009 and holds investments primarily in companies outside the United States.
