Public Companies

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 make their senior management available for questions and research, and gain unbiased research and recommendations from student teams.

Companies featured in previous Research Challenge competitions include Nuance Communications, Zipcar, iRobot, Staples, Charles River, Cabot Corporation and Analog Devices.

If you would like to learn more about how your company can become the focus of the student’s research, please email
