Applications Open: Sobey Impact Fund

Date Published: September 15, 2021


 

Students are endowed with the responsibility of making all of the investment decisions for the IMPACT Fund, which provides them with opportunity to serve as “real-world” research analysts and portfolio managers. The process of making all of the investment decisions (e.g., portfolio rebalancing, asset allocation, security selection and stock valuation), with advice from Sobey School of Business faculty and investment community mentors, results in a unique experience that allows the students to put theory into practice.

The IMPACT program offers unique opportunities to network and for community engagement and volunteering. Successful students will join the IMPACT Fund as Research Associates and join the IMPACT Team in managing a portfolio of about $700,000 in financial investments. 

Interested students must submit to impact.fund@smu.ca their application package, which should include: 

  • A cover/motivation letter (why you want to join IMPACT) 
  • Resume
  • Unofficial copy of your transcript 

The deadline for applications is September 23 at 5:00 p.m. Successful applicants will be contacted for virtual interviews starting on the 24th of September, 2021.

Criteria: Qualifying first year MBA students and third year BComm students
