The University of Missouri Investment Group (“UMIG”) educates, trains and places students from Mizzou in high-finance jobs across the country. The group hosts Wall Street Prep, a prominent training organization among large investment banks, which takes students to New York City and Chicago for professional preparation. Additionally, select students meet professionals in New York, Chicago, Kansas City and St. Louis for professional networking and career opportunities.
UMIG is organized into two levels to enhance its training and mentorship model. The “Associates Program” consists of twenty of the most senior members, who interview and test the entry level “Development Program” members. Those members take part in an eight-week course taught by Associates Program members to prepare them for the upper level.
