What is UMIG?

The University of Manitoba Investment Group (UMIG) is a student-based organization within the I.H. Asper School of Business that provides its members an engaging experience to advance their knowledge of the financial industry and prepare them for a career in finance.

UMIG is open to the entire University and students with any level of investment experience are encouraged to join. Whether you have no investment experience, or are a financial expert, UMIG has something to offer you.

Each year, we host the Annual UMIG Stock Market challenge in partnership Great-West Life, where members can win real-cash prizes! In 2014, we also will be hosting a wine and cheese in partnership with the CFA Society Winnipeg.

Presentations from guest speakers who are professionals in the finance industry, the chance to go on the New York Trip, and free pizza at our member meetings are all fantastic reasons to be a member in UMIG.

If you want to learn more about UMIG, feel free to check out our schedule and drop into one of our members meetings. If you have any questions, you can also always send us an e-mail at umig.mb@gmail.com.
