PRIME Program

A high quality practicum that combines traditional academic objectives with hands-on investment analysis and portfolio management.

The student-run investment program, the Program for Research and Investment Management Excellence (PRIME) manages a fund worth approximately C$2,000,000, focusing on the Canadian equity market. PRIME believes in the fundamental principle of proprietary investment management. Accordingly, PRIME was established to provide University of Alberta School of Business students with investment experience in an institutional setting. 

To enter the two-year program, Bachelor of Commerce students go through a competitive screening process for admission. Successful applicants have the qualifications and academic background to demonstrate they can meet the program's challenging objectives. 8-10 new students are admitted each year.
