                              Local Ukrainian Competition is one of the biggest competitions in EMEA Region (and top globally). Last year 180+ students from 35 Universities in 12 regions of Ukraine participated in the Research Challenge making Ukrainian contest one of the biggest in the world.

                              The Research Challenge is an annual educational initiative designed to promote best and ethical practices in equity research to students from universities worldwide through hands-on mentoring and intensive training in company analysis. Leading industry professionals mentor business and finance students on how to research and report on a publicly traded company.
