Every fall, teams of first year Boothies interested in pursing careers in investment management represent Booth in various MBA stock pitch competitions across the country. These events are a great way for students to hone their investing and stock pitching skills ahead of internship recruiting season, get valuable feedback from industry professionals who judge the competitions, and network with students from other MBA programs.
This year’s groups made Booth very proud and brought home some impressive top finishes! Booth teams finished first in the Ross MBA Stock Pitch Competition and the UNC Kenan-Flagler Alpha Challenge, and came in second at Columbia’s CSIMA Stock Pitch Challenge and the Cornell MBA Women in Investing Conference.
First-year students Ankush Sharda, Diego Gavito, and Lior Shachaf, who represented Booth at the Ross MBA Stock Pitch Competition, were interviewed by Forbes Magazine, where they discuss their winning pitch of Hawaiian Airlines Stock. Check it out!
Congrats to all the Boothies who competed this year!
