Applications are required to be selected as a member of the Program and should be Juniors. A background in Finance is preferred, but not required. Cardinal Fund Asset Managers are required to enroll in a two-semester investment fund class in their senior year, whose primary topics include Financial Statement Analysis, Equity Valuation, and Portfolio Management (FIN 450 and 451).
