A brief description of the student-managed sustainable investment fund:

The University does not specifically have a student-managed sustainable investment fund, but they do have courses for students focused on gaining socially and environmentally responsible investment skills. One includes an undergraduate course focused on consulting projects for local Nicaraguan organizations and entrepreneurs. Students in the course provide consulting to microfinance lending organizations and develop generic business plans, and market assessment tools. There is an MBA course that factors in sustainability into investment strategy that is offered as well.
