For the past 10 years, students at Saunders College of Business have participated in the Adirondack Cup: an inter-university competition where students manage a hypothetical small cap portfolio. Whichever team’s portfolio holds the greatest returns wins, and Saunders has been in the top 10 time and time again. Participation in the Adirondack Cup provides students a unique opportunity to experience realistically simulated financial investment.
Student participation in the Adirondack Cup is one of many opportunities for experiential learning at Saunders. The Saunders Financial Management Association allows students to manage a real $260,000+ stock and ETF investment portfolio. Student entrepreneurs take advantage of RIT’s Center for Urban Entrepreneurship and Venture Creations Incubator and pitch their business ideas for cash prizes in the Tiger Tank competition.
In addition to on-campus opportunities, Saunders students learn and work in paid internship positions through Saunders’ international co-op program. These factors give Saunders students plenty of valuable real-world experience before graduation. With a 94% career outcome rate, this is why employers want Saunders students
