The Michael Price Student Investment Fund is a $2 million investment pool managed directly by NYU Stern MBA students. The fund, part of the overall NYU endowment, was established in 1999 through a generous gift from Michael Price, managing partner, MFP Investors, LLC and former chairman of Franklin Mutual Series funds.

MPSIF provides a training ground for MBA students to gain hands-on experience managing a real fund with significant assets. Enrollment in the course that underlies MPSIF is a competitive process. Each year, enrollment is limited to 36 students who spend two semesters in MPSIF and are responsible for all fund activities - screening and evaluating stocks, preparing and presenting pitches for buy and sell recommendations and strategizing on broader portfolio allocation and risk management decisions. MPSIF students also prepare a periodic newsletter and annual and semi-annual reports that are presented to the MPSIF Board of Advisors, Stern faculty, and other parties.

Managing the diverse tasks in MPSIF relies on teamwork and requires students to draw on their knowledge of finance, macroeconomics, accounting, competitive analysis, strategy and marketing. Through MPSIF, students are immersed in a year-long course of security analysis and market research through which they gain invaluable experience for careers in investment management.
