Founded in 2018 by Professors Andrew Atkeson and William E. Simon, Jr., the Benjamin Graham Value Investing Program equips undergraduate economics students with an unparalleled education in finance and investing.
The Program consists of an academic concentration in Value Investing taught by real-world practitioners known as “Investors in Residence”. This industry-based curriculum prepares students through applied research projects, financial modeling, and group projects in four core courses:
EC-167 History of Financial Crises
EC-168 Introduction to Value Investing
EC-169 Applied Value Investing
EC-187 Special Projects in Investing
Students participating in this concentration (a total of 40 are accepted) will be able to understand the full set of fundamental economic and strategic forces that favor or disfavor a particular investment opportunity from both a theoretical and practical perspective.

In addition, the Benjamin Graham Value Investing Program offers a second component to the curriculum called the Simon Fellowship Program, which is a senior-level recruitment platform created to provide exceptional Value Investing Concentrators with avenues to explore careers at hedge funds, private equity firms, and other buy-side roles, through applied research projects and firm visits. Furthermore, the Benjamin Graham Value Investing Program has also partnered with the CFA Institute University Affiliation Program, giving Simon Fellows the opportunity to take the Level 1 Exam prior to graduation.
