Campbell University's Lundy-Fetterman School of Business recently saw students from ECON 420-Money and Banking and ECON 451-Essentials of Global Trade and Finance classes achieve impressive returns on their virtual investments in a stock market simulation. Over 13 weeks, students developed successful investment portfolios, investing a virtual $100,000 in real-world stocks, ETFs, mutual funds, and cryptocurrencies. The top three students were Ethan Hughson, Robert Beaman, and Nick Aderholt. Using a variety of resources, including class lectures, textbook materials, and online sources, students actively traded and participated in the semester-long Stock Market Game. Dr. Shahriar Mostashari, Associate Dean and Professor of Business, commended the students for their exceptional performance, achieving an unprecedented rate of return in the 30 plus year history of the SMG Competition at Campbell. The success of this year's competition highlights the value of hands-on practice in developing a successful investment portfolio. Additionally, the business school has two Student Led Investment Funds (SIFs) aimed at different audiences, providing students with real-world lessons in investment strategies and financial decision-making.
