Michigan Interactive Investments is the oldest investment club at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business, and is open to any undergraduate student enrolled at the University of Michigan. Each fall, MII seeks to add new members, and current students are invited to attend our outreach events and mass meetings held in early September to learn more about the organization.
This year’s mass meeting will be held on Sunday, 09/10, 11.30am at Robertson Auditorium.
MII’s Women’s Event, co-hosted with members of the Michigan Business Women, will be held on Monday, 09/11, 5.30pm at R2240.
MII’s application process consists of:
- Online application (Due Friday 09/15)
- First Round Interview (Saturday, 09/23 – by invitation)
- Second Round Interview (Sunday, 09/24 – by invitation)
To help prospective members craft their application responses, senior members in the club will host office hours during the following times:
- Tuesday, 09/12, 5-7pm at B3580
- Wednesday, 09/13, 5-7pm at R2220
Although the process has historically been very competitive, do not let a lack of a finance background deter you. We look for a diverse group of passionate individuals who have experiences and interests in many different fields. We place particular emphasis on:
- Proven academic excellence
- Interest in financial markets and strong willingness to learn and engage
- High level of extracurricular involvement and demonstrated leadership initiative
Once accepted, students remain members until graduation from the University. Each accepted member will be asked to provide a $150 membership fee for their first year of membership and $100 each following academic year to cover operating expenses of the club. However, in cases of financial hardship, dues are waived.
New members will also be placed into a group of five to six members, led by a senior club member, in which they will prepare investment pitches and market updates for the club. Through this process, members will learn about the markets and gain relevant hands-on investment experience throughout the year.
Additionally, to help educate our new members, MII runs biweekly “Breakfast Club” sessions. During these sessions, new members will learn, practice, and apply investment analyses in preparation for club pitches and to provide a sound foundation for a career in finance. Breakfast Club topics include basic and intermediate financial accounting, interactive valuation sessions (including building a DCF model and comparables analysis from scratch), and sourcing investment ideas, among other topics.
