Business students at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga who want to be investment professionals have the chance to manage a lot of real money—thanks to a unique program called The SMILE Fund (Student Managed Investment Learning Experience). It's an investment portfolio of $250,000 endowed by the UC Foundation .

Hunter Carroll and Emily McAndrew are two UTC students involved with the fund, and Dr. Hunter Holzhauer teaches in the UTC College of Business and is the fund's creator. They join us for an interview.
