Full-Time MBA

Search Fund Group

Would you like to run your own company but don’t have the next killer idea? Would you like to develop the skills and network to source, diligence, purchase, manage, and exit an entrepreneurial venture? If so, we encourage you to join the Search Fund Group. The Search Fund Group strives to accomplish two principal goals:

  • Educate students and alumni about the entrepreneurship-through-acquisition process
  • Create a community of interested and active industry participants


The Search Fund Group accomplishes its goals through both educational and experiential programming. The educational events are topical discussions with industry experts detailing each step of the entrepreneurship-through-acquisition process. The experiential portion will provide students with the opportunity to source and evaluate live investment targets (either for themselves or a third-party sponsor).

We expect that the ideas and connections you gain as a member of the Search Fund Group will prepare you to be a more adept entrepreneur whenever you make your move. If you have any questions or comments regarding the Search Fund Group please don’t hesitate to contact us.
