The Applied Portfolio Management program, run by the Discipline of Finance, enables undergraduate students to apply their academic knowledge and acquire practical skills by managing a portfolio of Australian equity securities using real money in real time through the University of Sydney Student Managed Fund.
The Fund has a dual mandate, designed to provide undergraduate finance students with hands-on equity analysis and portfolio management experience and to fund scholarships for disadvantaged students. Students have the unique opportunity to acquire practical investment management experience by forming, executing and evaluating the performance of investment recommendations.
