Sounds innocent, right? Just take a look at this article.
These students are obviously smart, and obviously committed. The question is...how committed?
Some interesting tidbits from Businessweek on the matter:
-40% of the members are freshmen
-At least one member describes themselves as "followers of Warren Buffett"
-It can be difficult to juggle classwork and a club that amounts to a full-time job
Understanding a company takes a lot more than just understanding financial metrics. Unfortunately, I can't comment on how this group operates and whether its students are getting a full, diverse education. What I can say is that concentrating on nothing but financing is a sure-fire way to kill a company.
Now, if these students never aspire to become Chief Executive Officers, they are obviously doing alright. If they do have higher dreams, though...they may just be following the wrong path.
