General Information

CIMG recruits new members at the beginning of each academic year. Any UA undergraduate student may apply, regardless of graduation year, major, or background in finance. Interested students are welcome to email CIMG at at any time with any inquiries about joining the group.

Applying to CIMG is a multi-step process. At the beginning of each academic year, CIMG will accept applications consisting of a resume and several short answer questions about interest in the group. After closely reviewing all of the applications, CIMG's Leadership team will conduct two rounds of interviews with select applicants. The first interview will be behavioral, evaluating an applicant's interest in investing and group fit. The second interview will consist of a short stock pitch followed by technical questions pertaining to the applicant's pitch and investing more generally. 

New Member Training Program

CIMG embraces the fact that many new members join the group with little to no experience in finance or stock research. To prepare new members with the technical understanding and abilities necessary to succeed as an analyst, CIMG has internally developed an extensive, 8-week training program which covers the basics of market analysis, business analysis, financial analysis, accounting, and valuation. All new members are required complete this program during their first semester in CIMG, and as a result, prospective new members should ensure they are available to meet weekly on Sunday afternoons and commit substantial time independently to completing assigned work associated with the training program.

  • Polished one page resume highlighting compelling experience

  • Strong interest in investing

  • Intellectual curiosity and demonstrated interest in learning

  • Excellent analytical and communication skills
