“Next semester’s budget for the event will allow us to produce hard copies of formal training materials that we can go over in person, for it would be more effective than online calls,” said Dutov.
“The idea of the case study arose when our board members saw that their counterparts at internships participated in case studies that their schools offered. We also realized that other students only see Investment Banking as a means to an end, rather than truly understanding the skills that are needed in the job. We thought this would be a great way for them to get the real world view of what Investment Bankers do,” said Dutov.
The case study members and non-members of the Finance & Economics Society allowed to get a chance to actively participate and gave them a chance to network with professionals. Team F member, Kenry Qi who is a senior finance major described the case study as “my final artwork.”
There were even freshmen finance majors who had made it to the last round of the competition.
Freshman Zack Lowenwirt said: “This case study competition allowed me to taste finance before taking any finance courses. It taught me to use Bloomberg technology and reaffirmed my decision to pursue investment banking.”
