The B&R Academy is the best method to learn the fundamentals about about investing. There is an academy every week on Thursday from 17:00 to 19:00 on campus. These academies will teach you everything you need to know about investing. The academies will cover theoretical concepts you may already know from your study, but from the perspective of an investor. This way you can translate these concepts and apply them to real-world examples. The academies will start from the basics but build up the level quickly, so you will be an experienced investor at the end of the year.
To continue our mission to deliver quality education to all our members, regardless of where you may be, you can attend the Academy in two ways, 1) physically on campus or 2) online via our Zoom live-stream. To join us on campus there is a registration requirement, spots will be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis. No registration is required to join the live-stream, you can find the Zoom links in our events page. 
It does not matter if you are a first year or master student; we aim to keep it interesting for everyone. The academy tracks consist of three academies each. Academy 1 of each track will introduce you to the topic and help you get a feeling for it. Academy 3 will cover advanced topics, and the second academy covers the parts between academy 1 and 3. The academies are separated into the following six tracks:
  1. Fundamental Analysis: This track will teach you about the underlying drivers of the value of companies. You will learn how to spot good (cheap) companies and how to deal with special situations such as a mergers or IPO’s.
