CFA Research Challenge
The CFA Research Challenge is a worldwide intercollegiate competition between teams of students that submit a corporate analysis of the company of their choice. Selected teams are invited to attend the Midwest competition to present their reports to a panel of industry professionals. Winners of the Midwest region are then invited to the American Regional Competition in Boston, and then on to South Korea for the world championship. Olivet typically places in the top 10 at the Chicago conference.
