The CFA Society of Chicago has invited IIT Stuart to participate in the annual CFA Institute Research Challenge, where teams of 3-5 business and finance students work directly with an equity mentor to research and prepare company analyses.
Participants will have a unique opportunity to learn from leading industry experts and compete with peers from the world’s top finance programs. In 2013, IIT Stuart’s team finished second in the Chicago regional competition, and in our first year competing in 2012, IIT Stuart’s team took first place in the Americas competition and was one of four teams to advance to the global final.
To be considered for the IIT Stuart team for the CFA competition, please review the following requirements:
- Undergraduate and graduate students should submit a resume and/or one-page document outlining interest in the competition, skills, and qualifications to Professor Michael Rybak at email@example.com by Friday, October 4, 2013.
- IIT Stuart faculty will review resumes and contact finalists to conduct 10-15 minute individual interviews following the deadline.
- Once selected, the IIT Stuart CFA Research team will prepare a detailed Equity Research Report on a company determined by the CFA. This report must be submitted by mid-January 2014, and should not interfere with course studies or final exams.
