University of Missouri Investment Group

The University of Missouri Investment Group (UMIG) is sponsored by the Trulaske College of Business’ Jeffrey E. Smith Institute of Real Estate and Capital Markets, which enhances the Trulaske curriculum by providing support in the areas of real estate and capital markets. 

UMIG facilitates opportunities for students to interact with professionals in high finance, and provides a variety of educational and networking opportunities for students interested in investment banking, private equity, asset management and other careers in capital markets.

We are proud to partner with and learn from Finance|able. Each semester, UMIG students receive training from Finance|able's Mike Kimpel, whom has served 15+ years in the finance industry working with companies around the globe. Finance|able was created to "help you more easily go from the 'ground floor' with zero knowledge to pro-level abilities with simple, intuitive materials that aim to minimize your study time and maximize retention." Their Finance Analyst Starter Kit is a great resource that can help to break down tough financial concepts that are crucial in order to succeed both in your interviews and on the job. 


General meetings are held on Tuesday nights from 5 p.m. in 115 Cornell Hall on the University of Missouri campus. Weekly lessons taught by members of the Associate’s Program inform the general group about careers in high finance, different methods of valuation, and news surrounding the world of finance. After an eight-week bootcamp is completed, general members are encouraged to apply for the upper-level Associate’s Program.

Members of the Associate’s Program complete a competitive interview process designed to mimic the real interviews for jobs in capital markets such as investment banking and private equity.

Join our organization here on MU Engage, and you will begin receiving email notifications from UMIG. Membership is open to any student at Mizzou, regardless of major. Reach out to Truman Webb (President) at with additional questions.

Corporate Visits

UMIG travels each academic year to visit Mizzou alumni working in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Kansas City and St. Louis. The purpose of these trips is to connect Associate’s Program members to Mizzou alumni.
