Finance students headed to 2018 CFA Societies Canada Ethics Challenge finals
Five senior finance students from the Bissett School of Business took home first prize at the CFA Society Winnipeg Ethics Challenge held at the end of January. The win earned the team a spot at the Canadian Ethics Challenge finals, to be held in Vancouver in May.
The team members were Dylan Assen, Tiffany Doyle, Harrison Kozak, Andy McAuley and Graham Perry. The competition included six universities: University of Alberta, University of Calgary, University of Saskatchewan, University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg, in addition to Mount Royal. The students had four weeks to analyze and evaluate a case, which presented several ethical dilemmas. Their task was to identify the violations of the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct and to recommend a course of action to address the situations. They had 10 minutes to present their findings to a panel of industry judges, followed by 10 minutes of intense questioning by the judges.
