Dragon Fund Application Information

FIN 341 is a two-course sequence that involves students in the Dragon Fund, a student-managed equity portfolio that is part of Drexel University’s endowment. The courses count as finance electives towards fulfillment of finance concentration requirements. Conditional on satisfactory performance in FIN 341, it is expected that students also enroll in FIN 342 when it is offered.

Application Information

Enrollment in FIN 341 is by application.

  • For enrollment in the fall quarter, interested students should submit their application by the end of July.
  • For enrollment in the spring quarter, students should submit their application by the beginning of February.

It is expected that classes will meet once a week on Tuesdays at 6 p.m.

What to Know Before Applying

  • Prerequisites: FIN 321.
  • The workload for these courses is very high and requires a substantial time commitment outside class – past Dragon Fund analysts have estimated the workload to be at least twice that of a finance class such as FIN 321.
  • Dragon Fund analysts are expected to actively contribute every week; class participation makes up a substantial fraction (25% or more) of the overall grade.
  • Given the interactive and team-based class approach as well as the interaction with an external audience, attendance is mandatory and professional business conduct during all class meetings is expected.
  • Admission decisions are made based on the application and possibly an interview.
