“What course of action would YOU recommend when confronted with a challenging and complicated business issue without clear-cut solutions?”
That is the question that more than 40 finance students from the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business were recently asked to answer and defend when presented with a real-life situation while visiting the CFA Institute, a global association of investment professionals, headquarters in Charlottesville, Virginia. The students were led by David Kass, clinical professor of finance and faculty champion of the sophomore Finance Fellows program. The undergraduates were joined by several students in the Masters of Science in Finance program. The issue-solving challenge was presented by Glenn Doggett, CFA’s director of professional standards.
