Sobre el CFA Institute Research Challenge
The CFA Institute Research Challenge offers students at participating centres a unique opportunity to learn from the experience of leading experts in the industry, and to compete with other students from the best finance programmes in the world. This annual initiative promotes the best practices in equity research in order to teach the next generation of analysts through a practical experience and intensive training in analysis and presentation skills.
“The CFA Institute Research Challenge is a competition between university-sponsored teams that research a designated publicly traded company, prepare a written report on that selected company, and then present their findings to a panel of judges. The competition has three levels: local, regional, and global. Winners at the local level advance to compete against teams within their geographic region at the regional level. Winning teams at the regional level advance to compete at the global level. One team is designated the ultimate winning team, or champion, at the global level.”
CESTE, Escuela Internacional de Negocios, has taken part with a team in the CFA Institute Research Challenge competition for the third consecutive year, together with the most prestigious universities and business schools worldwide, being among the five best institutions in Spain.
CESTE incorporates the CBOK™ curriculum into its Official Masters in Banking and Finance degree as well as the CFA Institute code of ethics and standards of professional conduct.
