TVA Investment Challenge Program: Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) made available $200,000 out of its decommissioning funds for each of the 25 universities in its service zone. Alabama A&M University is one of those 25 universities. The students of the Department of Finance and Economics of AAMU are given the opportunity to invest the fund in the stock market. No monetary benefit will come from this investment fund for the school, department, faculty or students. The sole purpose of this program is to provide the students an opportunity to manage real money. It is a valuable learning experience that is rare.
The Department recognizes one student in each degree program for “Outstanding Academic Achievement” in the Spring semester of each year.
