Simon Teams Place in Recent Case Competitions

Simon Business School students regularly participate in case competitions—a great way for students to apply what they learn in the classroom to solve real business problems. Meet two Simon teams who had great results at recent competitions:

Cornell Investment Portfolio Case Competition, February 1, 2019
Two teams from the Simon Finance and Investment Club competed against teams from other top schools—including Carnegie Mellon, Columbia, Cornell, Duke, Georgetown, Indiana, MIT, University of Michigan, and Yale—to present investment case analyses and portfolio recommendations to a judging panel of executives and recruiters from firms such as MacKenzie Investments, Fidelity, CFA Society NY, OFO Partners, AllianceBernstein, and TIAA-CREF. Both Simon teams advanced to the final round, and Team 1 took home first place!
