Not every investment banker gets the chance to cut their teeth on university finances. Ohio University’s Student Equity Management Group (OUSEMG) manages an equity portfolio of $7.1 million for the Ohio University Foundation under a concentrated portfolio strategy, with around half of that total set aside for socially responsible investing. OUSEMG members build required skills needed to be successful in highly competitive internships and careers. 

As a student-run organization, the members make all investment decisions and has consistently outperformed its benchmark, the S&P 500. Of the total portfolio, $2 million is reserved for socially responsible investments.

The group was founded in 2001 and allocated its first funds in March 2002. In 2014, the group was awarded an additional $2 million for social responsible investments. All capital gains and dividend income the group generates is for the Ohio University Foundation, which supports its scholarships, research grants, and other initiatives.


Membership in the Ohio University Student Equity Management Group is open to Ohio University students of any age with a GPA of at least 3.2. Aspiring analysts must have a strong interest in financial markets, be highly motivated individuals with a capacity for leadership, and be willing to contribute a significant amount of time to the group.

Each interested student must complete an application consisting of a research task, several essays, and an overview of academic performance. See application for specific requirements.

The next application will be posted soon.

“The opportunities are endless. You make the most of your time here. Whatever area of business you’re excited about, you can find an organization to be a part of or you can start one. It’s not limited to the classroom. … The Student Equity Group really altered me for the better. It gave me knowledge and experience that helped me decide who I am and what I want to do." —Cullen Challacombe, finance and business economics major
