How the Fellowship Program has broadened my perspective

Mahek

In my first term, it has already given me many opportunities to meet industry professionals and attend a variety of workshops and events.

A Virtual Fellowship Program

Once I attended UW, I was then offered the opportunity to join the Fellowship program. At first, I didn’t know what to expect, but today I can proudly say I have not regretted signing up for the program once.

How the Fellowship Program has empowered me to give back

The Fellowship program is amazing in that it provides you with the ability to connect with like-minded individuals who are both friendly and supportive.

The competition day was super quick – we delivered a 10-minute presentation which was followed by a 10-minute Q&A period. A lot of preparation culminated in only 20 minutes of time! Personally, this was the first time I participated in a completely virtual competition and as a result, I had to adjust to working remotely.

More than just a competition

One of the main reasons we won the CFA Ethics Local Challenge is because of the support received from the SAF Faculty.

At first, I was scared of entering my first ever co-op because I had no real work-experience prior, however, the BETS program really came in clutch and helped me enter my first co-op placement extremely prepared.

I’m what you call a battle-tested, seasoned veteran. No, not because I’m an Ace Pilot who has an airport named after me, but because I’ve been in your shoes, breaking a nervous sweat while wondering what life would be like past high school. (Spoiler: It’s pretty sweet!)

My Participation in the CFA Ethics Challenge: Lessons Learned

Johanna W. AFM Student

Participating in the CFA Ethics Challenge has provided me with an amazing opportunity to learn about the CFA Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct and to apply these ethics standards to a real-life scenario. All the feedback from faculty and the time spent together as a team in preparing for the presentation led to our team winning the local competition of the CFA Ethics Challenge!
