Editor’s Pick: The Executive MBA’s Student-Run Investment Fund
By Jay Hodgkins
A group of Executive MBA students in the University of Virginia Darden School of Business Class of 2016, led by Phillip St. Ours (EMBA ’16) and Brendan Miniter (EMBA ’16), established a first-of-its kind Executive MBA Student Investment Fund.
The student-run fund provides a practical outlet to gain real investing experience, and it also serves to more closely bind Executive MBA students to past and future classes as well as the Darden community as a whole.
“In your second year, you not only recognize the mark the MBA program is having on you, but also the drive to leave a mark on the program itself. A drive to build a legacy,” said St. Ours, a Charlottesville-based developer with a background in asset management. “Ten years from now, this will be a bridge to connect to the future cohort. That’s what the extracurricular experience is all about.”
