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.

During my time at Heidelberg, I was able to form personal relationships with faculty and staff members who supported me both in and outside the classroom. My professors worked with me to arrange the internship that led to my future employment, and I am so thankful for their guidance.
