Also, the high-tech lab works hand-in-hand with the student-run portfolio, the Pacer Investment Fund. The Pacer Investment Fund provides students with a solid knowledge of dealing with a stock portfolio. Students deal with actual money from investors and track their stocks. Along with handling real money, business students also have to observe the performance of the investor’s stock.
