Go Big Red!

#UNL students go to Buffett U. today

UNL business students can take a finance course called Investing the Buffett Way, and a select group of students from that class go to Omaha today to participate in Buffett U.

Each year, Warren Buffett (UNL ‘50) invites students from several universities to come to Omaha and spend a day picking his brain. Buffett, who earlier this week was honored by the White House with a  Presidential Medal of Freedom - the nation’s highest civilian honor, always extends the invite to his alma mater.

Donna Dudney teaches the course Investing the Buffett Way, or Finance 463, and she sees students get much more out of their audience with the Oracle of Omaha than stock tips. 

"When students go up to visit Buffett the thing that I’m always impressed about is a lot of the questions that students ask Buffett are not questions about investing at all," said Dudney. "They are questions about life — the mistakes that he’s made, the guidelines that he would make for students as they start their careers, and how he decides to donate his money.

Dudney talks about the types of Buffett thinking covered in the course here.
