The Intrieri Family Student-Managed Fund, which began in 2012 with a $100,000 gift from alumnus Vincent Intrieri ’84 and his wife, Joanne, has grown to more than $1 million! Reaching this milestone means funds gained beyond the million-dollar mark will help fund student scholarships.
“The original plan was to start offering scholarships in two years to allow us to build up a cushion,” said Dr. Timothy Krause, associate professor of finance and director of the fund. “However, the market has done so well that we are looking at offering a few scholarships starting this fall.”
While the scholarships are a nice bonus, the value of the student-managed fund is evident for upper-level Finance students who have the opportunity to actively manage the fund. Many business alumni have told Krause that their experience with the fund has directly contributed to their career trajectory.
