A Leader in Finance and Investment
The Center for Institutional and Investment Management was established in 2002, when a proposal developed by University at Albany finance department faculty was declared the winner of a SUNY-wide competition initiated by then-Chancellor Robert King, providing a $1.6 million endowment.
CIIM supports basic and applied research in the field of institutional investment management through collaborative efforts among School of Business faculty, finance students and financial experts while also supporting the University at Albany School of Business Investment Club.
The endowed research center has three objectives:
- Provide research support for data acquisition and enable faculty and students to attend scholarly conferences or stock-analysis competitions.
- Support networking, and professional development and financial training opportunities for students.
- Fund hardware, software and data needs for stock analysis for the student-run investment group, University at Albany School of Business Investment Group.
