Investing in education
Southern Wesleyan University business majors are learning about the world of high finance by investing in companies through a university-sponsored investment club called Timely Investments Creating Keen Equitable Returns (TICKER). The club uses funds donated by area companies such as Easley Custom Plastics and Merrill Lynch of Clemson. Students research investment options and buy stocks in the companies they feel with perform the best. Profits from the investment club will go to fund SWU business school activities such as plant tours, executive dinners and community service learning projects.
