CUHK Business School students excel in CFA Institute Research Challenge – Hong Kong Local Final 2023-24

Two teams of students from The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Business School clinched the first and the second runner-up positions in the CFA Institute Research Challenge – Hong Kong Local Final 2023-24, which was held on 17 February 2024.

Hosted by CFA Society Hong Kong, the annual equity research competition provides university students with practical mentoring and intensive training in financial analysis. This year, 23 teams of students from Hong Kong and Macao were tested on their analytical, valuation, report writing, and presentation skills, as they assume the role of research analysts for H World Group Limited, a global leading hotel operator and franchisor.

Both winning teams from CUHK Business School expressed their appreciation for the invaluable guidance and support received from faculty advisor Dr Edwin Mok and their industry mentors.
