CFA Research Challenge
Each Research Challenge season leverages the efforts of over 140 CFA member societies, 3,500 member volunteers, and more than 5,000 students from over 1,000 universities.
How the Research Challenge Works
- Securing subject companies
- Recruiting volunteers (such as team mentors)
- Inviting universities in their geographic region to participate
The winning university team from each local competition advances to one of the three regional competitions.
The regional and global competitions are hosted by CFA Institute in the Americas; the Asia Pacific; and the Europe, Middle East, and Africa regions. The winning teams from each regional competition advance to the Global Final, where one team emerges as the global champion of the CFA Institute Research Challenge.
