Get Involved: Industry

Corporate Sponsors

Sponsors of the CFA Institute Research Challenge get access and exposure to

  • Thousands of students and hundreds of faculty members from the top business and finance programs around the world
  • Senior investment professionals and officers of publicly traded companies at onsite events
  • More than 100,000 CFA Institute members and candidates through international financial industry press coverage of the event

Public Companies: Be the Subject of the Competition

Each Research Challenge team analyzes a public company, writes a report that is reviewed and judged by CFA charterholders, and presents to a panel of local investment professionals. Companies that make their senior management available for questions and research gain unbiased research and recommendations from student teams.

Join the ranks of past subject companies: Adidas, Mexichem, Marriott, Vodafone, Aer Lingus, Hyundai, and First Gulf Bank.

To learn more about how your company can become the focus of the student’s research, please contact your local CFA Society or the Research Challenge team.
