The advisory boards of the Hawk Center play a critical role in the Wisconsin MBA for Applied Security Analysis.
During the second year of their MBA studies, ASAP students manage various portfolios and operate the investment firm. They have research and administrative duties within the firm. Students are divided into teams, manage about $50 million, have no safety net, and report to clients.
The UW System is the client for the fixed income portfolios. The ASAP Board of Advisors serves as the client for the equity portfolios and also provides oversight for the fixed income portfolios. The Board is comprised primarily of alumni, all of whom hold active leadership positions in the investment community. Although the alumni are very supportive of the program, Advisory Board members take seriously their charge to challenge students and create the environment and experience of the most demanding client-manager relationship.
