The School of Accounting and Finance's (SAF) sixth Annual Investment Research Challenge proved to be another memorable experiential opportunity for SAF students. Serving as a training ground for students who have gone on to win external competitions, including the global championship for the 2016 CFA Research Challenge, 18 student teams competed in July for a top prize of $2,000.
Convocation is a huge milestone. The entire university comes together to celebrate years of hard work, dedication, and engagement. Wednesday, June 13, 2018 marked a historical event for the University of Waterloo.
The inaugural SAF Strategy Case Competition was held on Saturday, June 2nd. Opened to all School of Accounting and Finance (SAF) students in second year or above, the annual event is meant to provide an experiential opportunity for students to gain exposure to and learn about the expectations for careers in the field of consulting. A total of 38 teams registered for the competition of which 16 were chosen to compete.
This past term, the School celebrated the fifth anniversary of the Student Investment Fund (SIF), as well as the launch and inaugural investment of the Student Venture Fund (SVF).
