CFA Institute is an international organization that brings together tens of thousands of financial specialists across the world. Teams comprised of BA and MA students studying economics and finance from hundreds of the world’s leading universities compete in the annual CFA Institute Research Challenge. The students have to prepare research and analysis of a particular company and assess its value.
This year the winner was the HSE team which was represented by the International College of Economics and Finance MSc students Anastasia and Anna Tikhonova, Ksenia Kushner and Suren Avanyan. The winners will go on to represent Russia at the regional stage in the CFA Institute Research Challenge 2014-2015 for countries of Europe, the Middle East and Africa – which will take place in Amsterdam in April 2015.
ICEF is very proud of its students and wishes them further success!
