Our Alumni Network

The Berkeley Investment Group is the oldest investment club on the Berkeley campus and as such has an extensive alumni network with alumni working in a variety of financial disciplines, tech, and many other industries. Many of these alumni actively participate in BIG events by speaking at general member meetings, attending alumni meetups, and mentoring current officers in the club directly through internships or other channels. Some alumni are also shareholders in the fund, representing their continued commitment to BIG's success as a fund.
