Sobey School of Business’ IMPACT Fund Managers Alex Fowler, Mengqing Chen, Jorge Gonzalez, and Mitchell Norrie also came out on top as winners of the Atlantic Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Competition in March. This win takes the team to the Americas Regional Competition in Seattle, Washington.

In Sobey School MBA news, a team defeated contenders from 10 other top MBA programs to take first place in February’s East Meets West Leadership Case Competition at the Ivey Business School. Meanwhile, another team of MBA students prevailed against challengers from the world’s most prestigious business schools to emerge as one of the top three finalists in the first round of the Ben Graham Centre’s International Stock Picking Competition.
