BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Thanks to support from a member of the Indiana University Kelley School of Business Dean’s Council and Morgan Stanley, students and faculty will have complimentary access to real-world, market-moving information and analysis from Barron’s.
The Kelley School’s new partnership with the Barron’s in Education program from Dow Jones is the result of generous support from The Roeser Group at Morgan Stanley, a Chicago-based wealth advisory firm led by Kelley Dean’s Council member Kathy Roeser.
Beginning this fall, Kelley students, faculty and staff will have free 24/7 access to the investment publication online, including its real-time analysis and commentary on the markets.
The Barron’s in Education program includes a subscription to a weekly newsletter that features a review of top events and articles that can be addressed in the classroom as well as a summary of other top business and investment stories. Barron’s is also making its MarketWatch Virtual Stock Exchange interactive game available at no cost to students.
The program also offers access to guest speakers and webinars, connections with corporate recruiters, and opportunities for top students to tour Dow Jones’ corporate headquarters in Manhattan, including a private tour of Barron’s, Marketwatch and Wall Street Journal newsrooms.
“The Roeser Group at Morgan Stanley is proud to be supporting this great initiative. Having a basic understanding of how financial markets operate when graduating and entering professional careers is a necessity,” Roeser said. “Financial market movements have an impact on nearly every aspect of one’s life and work. Being able to graduate and start a professional career with a solid understanding of personal finances and financial markets will prove to be extremely advantageous regardless of area of work. We hope all Kelley students take advantage of this opportunity.”
“We welcome the Barron’s in Education program to Kelley and appreciate the investment in our program from one of our valued Dean’s Council members,” said Idalene “Idie” Kesner, dean of the Kelley School and the Frank P. Popoff Chair of Strategic Management. “This tool will provide our students with a new resource helping to advance their financial skills and knowledge and their career readiness. In addition, this resource is a valuable tool for our faculty members in the areas of teaching and research, both of which are vital to the Kelley School’s educational mission.”
For more than 30 years, Roeser has helped successful executives and multi-generational families understand issues pertaining to managing their wealth. She also is a frequent contributor to financial news publications and appears regularly on Chicago-area television programs to discuss financial topics. She frequently appears on Forbes and Barron’s lists of the nation’s top female financial advisors, as well as other listings of successful wealth consultants.
