The Department of Finance mentors an Elon undergraduate student team to compete in the CFA Institute Research Challenge (CFA IRC), an annual, global competition providing university students with hands-on mentoring and intensive training in financial analysis. Students work in teams to research and analyze a publicly traded company. Each team writes a research report on their assigned company with a buy, sell, or hold recommendation and presents and defends their analysis to a panel of industry professionals.
