History of UIC

The Carnegie Mellon Undergraduate Investment Club was started in September 2003 when a group of students came together with the common concern that there was no outlet for learning about the stock market at Carnegie Mellon. We met to discuss investment strategies, company outlooks, and the economy as a whole. As the group grew, we felt the need to be recognized by Student Senate so we would have the ability to reserve space on campus, become more eligible for funded-recognition, and to receive the other benefits that come with funded status. Following the recognition in April of 2004, we participated in the Activities Fair where there was a strong showing of interest from all colleges. We were invited to participate in the CMba Business Symposium where we also had a lot of interest. We were also invited to present our club to parents of students during Family Weekend at the Business Administration Academic Meeting. We spoke along with Dean Murphy and various business school administrators to the parents.

Our club has now grown exponentially with membership of over 350 students, many of them non-business majors who want the opportunity to learn how to invest their money. The reason for our high-speed growth is because students of all majors have a tremendous interest in making money through investing, and this organization is the premier medium on campus for fulfilling that demand.
