Find your Fit

Whether you are a McCombs student recruiting for IB/consulting, an Cockrell student interested in stock trading, or an astronomy major wanting to start your own business, joining LIT will come in handy.

Grounded in 3 core business disciplines, our curriculum is designed to advance your specific interests during your undergrad journey.

Investing: LIT manages a real money portfolio, hosts trading competitions, and studies key industry topics from career paths to trading strategies.

Marketing: Students manage the brands of both LIT itself and small businesses spun-out of the organization. This provides instructional experience for students seeking to leverage real world marketing tactics from content marketing and SEO to planning large-scale events.

Entrepreneurship: LIT exposes members to the startup scene at UT through relationships with Capital Factory and The Herb Kelleher Center for Entrepreneurship on campus. Members also have the opportunity to consult existing startups on campus or develop their own using group resources.
