    About Us

    IPO was founded a few short years ago with a simple concept -- to teach others and ourselves how to invest. Starting with just a handful of members and an idea, IPO has rapidly grown to include over 60 members, an interview process, and 12 core hourly seminars per semester. Our members now include students with leadership from a wide range of other prestigious organizations, including IBA, IMA, IBC, Business Council, and every business fraternity on campus. In terms of job placement, IPO members have seen a wide range of internships, from Investment Banking jobs in New York City and Chicago to research fellowships, Hedge Funds, and Private Equity firms, exemplifying the diverse backgrounds our members come from.

    While there are many factors that have contributed to IPO's success, three stand out most. First among these is our commitment to our core mission statement: sharing real-world knowledge of investing with others. Through numerous presentations by students and industry experts alike, hands-on demonstrations of investment software, and simulated stock trading competition, we give the skills needed to start investing personally or as a career. Second is our dedication to developing our members professionally. As an organization, we strive to help our members achieve their very best. With insider knowledge of many other top organizations on campus, as well as a plethora of interview and résumé experience, IPO prides itself on getting our talent wherever else he or she wants to be. The final major key to IPO's success is its incredible opportunity for leadership. IPO is still ripe with opportunity to fundamentally transform itself. Furthermore, since it is still growing so quickly, there are many new leadership roles constantly opening up to help drive our development. All one needs to advance in IPO is initiative, which is much of the reason we have thrived.
