The Michael Price Student Investment Fund  
The Leonard N. Stern School of Business, New York University

The Michael Price Student Investment Fund is a $1.6 million investment pool
managed directly by NYU Stern MBA students. The fund, part of the overall
NYU endowment, was established in 1999 through a generous gift from Michael
Price, managing partner, MFP Investors, LLC and former chairman of Franklin
Mutual Series funds.

MPSIF provides a training ground for MBA students to gain hands-on experience
managing a real fund with significant assets. Enrollment in the course that
underlies MPSIF is a competitive process. Each year, enrollment is limited to 45
students who spend two semesters in MPSIF and are responsible for all fund
activities – screening and evaluating stocks, preparing and presenting pitches for
buy and sell recommendations and strategizing on broader portfolio allocation
decisions. MPSIF students also prepare a periodic newsletter and annual and
semi-annual reports that are presented to the MPSIF Board of Advisors, Stern
faculty, and other parties.

Managing the diverse tasks in MPSIF relies on teamwork and requires students to
draw on their knowledge of finance, macroeconomics, accounting, competitive
analysis, strategy and marketing. Through MPSIF, students are immersed in a
year-long course of security analysis and market research through which they
gain invaluable experience for careers in investment management.

Students in the Michael Price program have voluntarily submitted their resumes to be included in this book.
