Argo Investment Fund (The "Fund")

The Argo Investment Fund (the “Fund”) provides UWF students with a hands-on investment experience designed to enhance learning in the traditional classroom. Manage real money in the market, analyze companies to invest in, and meet investment professionals.

The Fund is operated with both educational and investment objectives, striving to:

  • Give students the opportunity to apply security selection and portfolio management theories.
  • Act as a platform by which students may improve their analytical, communication, and presentation skills.
  • Provide a forum for interaction and engagement with the financial community (through the use of guest speakers, delivery of student presentations open to guests from the financial community, encouraging professional contacts with local business leaders, etc.).
  • Focus on long-term growth of the Fund’s assets while, net of fees, bettering appropriate benchmarks (such as the S&P 500 Index) on a risk-adjusted basis.
  • Ethically and responsibly manage the resources under its direction to the best of its members’ abilities.

Open to all majors.

Supply Chain Logistics Association

Supply Chain Logistics Association

The Supply Chain Logistics Association (SCLA) is a professional organization designed to give our members interaction with industry professionals. Our motto in SCLA is "Link with Industry, Launch Your Career" and that is exactly what we strive to do for our members every semester with the help of our Faculty adviser Dr. Keller, and other logistics professors Dr. LeMay, and Dr. Ralston.

Each semester we take our members on tour of local facilities that require logistics and supply chain management everyday including Hyundai manufacturing plant, Family Dollar Distribution Center, both the Ports in Mobile and Pensacola, Lewis Bear Company distribution center, and others.

We help our members build their resumes and connect them with recruiters from companies around the United States.

For those who are still in search of what you want to do after you graduate or even just looking at all the job opportunities that will open up in the next few years of your lives, I encourage you to join and attend our meetings. This is your opportunity to learn and be a part of how all the products in your life start in a manufacturing process and arrive to the consumer.

You might wonder what are some of the other benefits of attending the meeting and potentially joining the association. Here are a few:

1. Placement for our program's graduates is steady with nearly 100% placement for graduates wanting to enter the field of supply chain management and logistics. We graduate about 20 students per year and will be growing fast.

2. We have about 50 students in the current certificate and degree programs, and expect that to grow significantly as the first class to graduate with our stand-alone Supply Chain Logistics degree walks across the stage this December.

3. Industry reports show that about half of the U.S. companies plan to hire supply chain people within the year. Other reports show that there are many more job opportunities in supply chain logistics than there are graduates. The statistic I have see has been a 6 to 1 ratio of jobs to graduates.

4. We have some major industry partners that annually have been hiring many of our students, including Crane Worldwide Logistics, Avalex Technologies, Ascend Performance Materials, C.H. Robinson, J.B. Hunt Transport, and R+L Carriers.

5. Our logistics courses at UWF are some of the highest enrolled classes within the College of Business. That means that students are very interested in the classes and in the field as a career opportunity.

6. Our student teams have placed 1st through 4th in national-level logistics competitions in 8 of the past 10 years. We only began our program 10 years ago. In fact, in the Operation Stimulus Case Competition hosted by the Denver Transportation Club, we compete against some of the top Supply Chain Logistics programs across North America.

If you have any questions feel free to email us at scla@uwf.edu.
