TVA Investment Challenge Program

Western Kentucky University’s students have a chance to participate in a hands-on, real-world portfolio management class as part of TVA’s Investment Challenge Program (ICP). This unique, active learning, discussion-based class empowers students to make all decisions related to a ‘real,’ 25 – 30 stock portfolio that is valued more than $500,000. As part of this experience, WKU students are competing with 24 other schools in the TVA’s service region across Kentucky, Alabama, Tennessee, and other states.  Since inception of this program in 1998, WKU students have done a great job of beating their benchmark (S&P 500) on many occasions and have placed in the top three at least 4 different times—including in 2017, when WKU’s portfolio returns of 29.25% outperformed the S&P by over 7% and we placed third in the competition!
