Babson Wins Local CFA Institute Research Challenge 

2019 CFA Research Challenge

The team of Rushi Nagalla '19, Mitchell Troyanovsky '19 Guillermo Vadell '19, and Albert Yun '19 were required to analyze a publicly-traded company, write a comprehensive research report, and then present their research to a group of industry judges. The team competed against 10 local colleges and universities including Bentley, BU, Northeastern, and Tufts. Babson has won two out of the last three years, which is a testament to experiential learning programs like the Babson College Fund, where student have the ability to manage a portion of the College’s endowment and be mentored by our executives in residence.

The team also traveled to New York City to represent Boston in the Americas Competition as they competed against the best teams in North and South America. Only the top 9% of students competing worldwide made it to the Regionals. While in town, NASDAQ graciously hosted the trio of Rushi, Mitchell and Albert at their Times Square MarketSite. The students had the opportunity to attend the closing bell ceremony, meet with members of NASDAQ’s listings team who recently facilitated the IPOs of Lyft and Zoom, and tour the CNBC’s Fast Money studio. Babson lost in the semi-finals to the team that won the Americas – Canisius College.

On behalf of the team, the Cutler Center would like to thank Warren Johnson and Dave Wellinghoff MBA’07 for their guidance and support throughout the process.
