A Powerful Program
OUR STUDENTS in the program get a leg up as they compete for much sought after positions in the investment field. About 600 of our graduates have moved on to careers in equity research, private equity, trading, sales, portfolio management and other career paths. Participation in Burkenroad Reports goes a long way in differentiating our undergraduate and graduate business students.
"The Burkenroad Program provided me with a thorough understanding of financial analysis and modeling skills that has proven to be a valuable skill set. Not only did the program give me the real-world experience of interacting with executive management at well-known companies, but also equipped me with the necessary excel and analytical skills that helped me succeed during my summer internship."
Sarah Lawhorne, BSM Candidate 2018/Finance
THE COMPANIES we cover gain additional exposure to both individual and institutional investors. Our work has a wide circulation and the Annual Burkenroad Reports Investment Conference draws about 600 investors each year. Past keynote speakers have included Mario Gabelli, Jim Paulsen, David Nierenberg, Jason DeSena Trennert and Joel Greenblatt.
"We enjoyed having Burkenroad students provide research into our Company, including hosting them for a site visit. There was, frankly, a more direct opportunity to mold the investment thesis and for companies with a smaller market capitalization, research coverage is particularly crucial and hard to come by."
