What did you like best about your time in Bulldog Investment Company?

The best thing about Bulldog Investment Co is it is a fun laid back atmosphere, (as long as you work hard) that applies to the real world. This is the only class I was in where 100% of the material is useful in the real world and it will improve your quality of life. 

What did you like least about your time in Bulldog Investment Company?

The only thing that I didn't like or frustrated me in Bulldog Investment Co was one or two semesters we had a presentation around finals time. 

Why should current students participate in Bulldog Investment Company? 

Current students from any major that has an interest in the stock market should join Bulldog Investment Co. Bulldog Investment Co. teaches students how to look for great businesses, figure out their intrinsic value, and determine if it is a good long term investment. This knowledge is important for any one, not just financial professionals, because you will be able to look at any company you work for a determine how financially stable your employer is.

What aspects of Bulldog Investment Company prepared you for the “real world?”

This is important in the "real world" because if more than one company gives similar job offers you can differentiate between the more stable company. This allows you increase your job security. 

How did Bulldog Investment Company help you obtain a job?

I had a job before joining Bulldog Investment Co, but it is one of the best things you can have on your resume. Future employers will see that you work hard outside of school in something that teaches life skills.

If you had all the power in the world to change anything about Bulldog Investment Company—what would it be?

I would fire Dave. Haha. The only thing I would change would be to make the teams smaller--preferably 3 people. However, I don't think its possible because there are too many people interested in Bulldog Investment Co. I really like how the meetings are structured. That is mostly dealing with current events and a portfolio review.
