The Undergraduate Stock Pitch Challenge
Organized and Hosted by the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management, Cornell University
September 30, 2014
The Undergraduate Stock Pitch Challenge provides a forum for students from top undergraduate programs to compete and showcase their stock-picking skills in front of a panel of distinguished judges drawn from sponsoring firms. Competing teams, consisting of three members per team, have one week to prepare three stock pitches, which they present to the judge panel on the day of the competition. First-place teams receive prize money of $3,000 while second- place winners receive $1,500.
In addition to gaining valuable experience and competing before judges, students have a chance to shine before prospective employers. Resume books of all participants are distributed to attending recruiters, and students have an opportunity to mingle with judges and recruiters at both the welcoming reception and the awards reception.
