CFA Institute Research Challenge 
An educational initiative that promotes best practices in equity research among the next generation of analysts

The CFA Institute Research Challenge is an annual global competition which provides university students with hands-on mentoring and intensive training in financial analysis and professional ethics. Each student participant will be tested on their analytic, valuation, report writing and presentation skills and gain real-world experience as they assume the role of a research analyst.

This year, more than 4,000 students from over 865 universities worldwide are participating in local challenges, leading to the regional and global competitions hosted by CFA Institute.
