Over the years, TUIT members have come from a variety of academic and vocational backgrounds. As a team, we pride ourselves over our:

TUIT goes beyond classroom concepts by teaching each analyst to build various valuation models, skills invaluable in academic and professional pursuits.

In being a part of TUIT, one can expect:
- Hands-on financial modeling
- Coverage of equities across a wide array of industries
- Opportunities to express investment ideas and participate in weekly stock pitches
- Daily interactive team discussions on current market conditions
- Innovative weekly lesson plans and case studies on recent market deals
- Valuable guidance in career development via personal mentorship
iNCOMING ANALYST CLASSES
New members go through rigorous training which includes “boot camp," a series of seminars in which older members teach basic accounting, fundamental analysis, and valuation techniques necessary for each new analyst. The skills acquired by analysts during boot camp serve as a foundation for other techniques and are consistently applied and refined throughout the year via stock pitches, workshops, and mentorship. Members also participate in “Food for Thought” discussions and M&A case studies each week.
Mentorship is essential for professional and personal refinement, and every analyst is given a mentor to help foster continuous growth of knowledge. Mentors are able to provide guidance with team assignments, as well as academic and career support outside of team meetings. All members are also encouraged to reach out to TUIT alumni, who can provide a wealth of information for current students.
The key to our continued success stems from the exceptional talent pool at The University of Texas at Austin.
TUIT’s selection process is highly competitive, starting with resume and application submission. Selected individuals are then called in to interview with a panel of senior members. Candidates are evaluated on a wide variety of criteria, with a focus on passion, work ethic, and desire to Pay it Forward. Our recruitment pool is not restricted to business majors. Past team members have explored concentrations ranging from MPA to Engineering.
TUIT recruits during the beginning of fall and spring semesters. Interested applicants are advised to attend our information sessions and/or coffee chats each semester to gain more insight into the organization and its current members. Candidates of any prior experience or academic background are welcome to apply.
Details about Spring 2018 recruiting will be available by mid-January. Feel free to reach out to any of our members in the meantime to learn more about the team.
