Club Organization

The TU Investment Club is organized into six departments which are either of organizational or investment background. All Members should participate in at least one department. The organizational departments which include Education, Community, Infrastructure, External Affairs and Member Development are responsible for supportive and administrative tasks and are thus necessary for the successful existence of the TU Investment Club. Activities of the Investing department take place in cooperation with our real money fund, the MSMIF.


The Education Department aims to strengthen and extend the knowledge base of the club’s members. Therefore, responsibilities include knowledge management, internal education, the analyst program and the advanced analyst program.


The Community Department manages the recruiting process and is responsible for the internal networking of TU Investment Club members. Moreover, this department ensures the valuable integration of our Alumni and leads the Women in Finance initiative.


The Infrastructure Department is responsible for the club’s financial, legal and IT matters as well as the administration of its members. Comprising the club’s main internal processes, some of the areas of responsibility include budgeting, the assurance of compliance with legal requirements, and the development and administration of the IT infrastructure.

External Affairs

The External Affairs department is responsible for the club’s communication to students and industry partners. The aim is to enhance the club’s visibility through different marketing activities, while developing and fostering relationships to our sponsors through workshops and events.

Member Development

The Member Development Department assists the Club’s members in progressing with their studies, careers, Club responsibilities and personal lives. The department provides individual feedback, facilitates internal connecting and mediates exclusive career opportunities to develop the Club’s greatest asset — its members.


The Investing Department is the core of the club. Each semester all members slip in the role of an Analyst and present a company analysis, conducted in small teams, in form of a stock pitch in our weekly meetings. If deemed an interesting case for our real-money fund “MSMIF”, an investment committee proceeds to further evaluate all risks and the investment thesis before passing the final investment decision.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have no background in finance or business administration, can I participate?

Club membership is open to any student, regardless of their course of study. Applicants will be judged by their motivation and interest in financial markets and investing. Our junior analyst training will ensure that every member has a sufficient financial knowledge to participate in our investing activities. However, the selection for our external events is usually based on our partner’s recruitment criteria.

Do I need to apply for events? How do I apply?

We mostly organize application-oriented events. Therefore, participation is limited to an adequate number of people. Application will be open until a few days prior to the event. Make sure to apply online if you wish to participate in any of our events. Please check the event description to learn about any limitations, application (documents) and deadlines.

How important is diversity to the TU Investment Club?

We highly appreciate that we attract members from all genders, from diverse nationalities and from a variety of professional backgrounds. We feel that a broad range of personalities is an important asset for both our social Club life and within the investment departments. We understand ourselves as a contributor in overcoming finance stereotypes and we are thus happy to welcome all kinds of finance enthusiasts.

What is your primary language of communication?

Our meetings and events are mostly held in German as most participants are native speakers. However, we will also communicate in English internally if necessary. For our public events, you will always be informed about the language in the event description. Sometimes our sponsors and event partners require us to communicate in English.

Why is there no German website?

English is the major language in finance as it is in a lot of areas of global importance. Most jobs in the industry require employees to be fluent in English and possibly go abroad for business purposes. Our website is completely in English just as the majority of the industry’s websites.
