The Department of Finance will mentor an Elon undergraduate student team to compete in the annual global CFA Institute Research Challenge (CFA IRC).
The CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) charter is the designation of excellence in the investment community. Details of the CFA program and charter are available on the CFA Institute website at www.cfainstitute.org, while further information on the CFA IRC is available here.
Students interested in participating should submit the following:
• a short (1-2 single-spaced page) statement of interest highlighting written, quantitative, and presentation skills. Also, include a list of upper-level finance classes already taken, and your proposed course schedules for the upcoming fall, winter, and spring semesters,
• a copy of your Elon University transcript (including declared majors and minors), and
• an updated resume.
Applications for the 2014-15 team will be accepted starting March 1 and are due April 15, 2014. Feel free to contact Dr. Neeraj J. Gupta, CFA in KoBC 222 for further details. Students selected for the team will be notified by email shortly after the deadline.
