TVA Investment Challenge

The TVA Investment Challenge provides hands-on applications of advanced portfolio concepts by managing an actual investment portfolio. Students implement trading strategies, place trades, provide performance reports, and adhere to similar standards as professional money managers while acting as fund managers for the Tennessee Valley Authority. The primary objective is for students to maximize long-run capital growth subject to relevant risk factors and investment restrictions.

Internship Highlight

Elliot Davis Intern

Lauren Montgomery, 2022 Tennessee Tech graduate, interned with Elliot Davis. Below is the testimonial she provided about her internship experience.

“Elliott Davis is a public accounting firm, and I worked out of the Nashville office. Through this experience with Elliott Davis, I learned about various types of audits. I learned about internal audits, compliance, and loan reviews. The internship experience at Elliot Davis benefited me for my future because I could meet so many different people and build great relationships with coworkers. I now know more about what public accounting looks like from an audit perspective.”
