Berg-CFA Financial Competition

Join a team of students who have a strong interest in finance and accounting. The Berg-CFA Investment Challenge Team competes against elite peers from other schools. The team works together to research, write a paper, and then give a presentation to establish a recommendation of buy, sell, or hold on a real company's stock. The team is then questioned and evaluated by a panel of CFA endorsed analysts who judge the competition.
