We are pleased to support and have a relationship with the Barker Capital Management Group (BCMG) at the University of Idaho. Based in the College of Business the BCMG Trading Program focuses on risk and money management. The programs approach is founded on the belief that hands-on learning plays a critical role in the development of capital management strategies and skills. The program allows students to actively participate in the markets as sector analysts, and have the opportunity to become funded traders to trade in a variety of ways using equities, fixed income, commodities, and derivatives. The goals of the program are to:


  • Introduce students to trading and risk management strategies.
  • Enable exploration of markets for securities, options and futures.
  • Promote interdisciplinary cooperation across the land grant elements of the university.
  • Create job and career opportunities.
