SMIF Experience

Class Size.

Approximately 20 graduate and undergraduate Finance students participate in SMIF each semester. Students are divided into teams to foster a rich learning experience with team members and the SMIF faculty member, Dr. Jeff Mercer. Typically, students are only accepted into the program for one semester.

Time Commitment.

A high level of commitment is required to participate in SMIF. Attending class is a significant part of the experience. In addition to actively participating in rigorous classroom discussions, students will be required to perform extensive research outside the classroom.
