The CFA Societies Canada Ethics Challenge can:
- Improve your professional presentation skills
- Help you gain ethical decision-making experience
- Expose you to real-world ethical dilemmas
- Train you to work with a team
- Extend your professional network
How It Works
Local Competitions will be hosted by a local CFA Society (held in British Columbia, Alberta, Prairies, Ontario, Québec and Atlantic Canada).
A faculty advisor acts as the link between the local host Society and the student team. The faculty advisor assembles the team and guides them throughout the process.
Students will have approximately four weeks to work on the case study provided by the host Society. Teams then present their analysis and recommendations to a panel of judges. The competition is 100% presentation based, which includes a 10-minute presentation, and then an additional 10 minutes to respond to questions from the judges.
One winning team from each Local Competition will advance to the CFA Societies Canada Ethics Challenge in Montreal, QC, in early May 2020.
In the national round, students will have three hours to work on a new case and then present to a live judging panel of CFA charterholders. A reception will follow, where one team will be designated the ultimate CFA Societies Canada Ethics Challenge winner!
Teams are judged based on their recommended course of action and their ability to identify the violations to the CFA Institute Code of Ethics & Standards of Professional Conduct.
