Babson’s team won the CFA Institute Research Challenge, defeating 11 area colleges and universities. As a result, the team traveled to Seattle in April for the Americas competition where they competed against the best teams in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

The competition involves analyzing a local publicly traded company and then writing a comprehensive research report with a buy, hold, or sell recommendation. The team was comprised of Brittany Bascom MBA’16, Rachel Burstiner ’17, and Roy Nakamajeo ’17.
