Join this competition to show off your financial analytics skills as a BusLaw student!

Looking to show off your skills in financial analytics? The Deakin Business School is partnering again with the CFA Institute and the Department of Finance to run the third annual Deakin Stock Pitch Competition.

Apply as a team of 3-5 students to research designated public companies traded on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) and prepare and present a report on a selected company to a panel of judges.

Winning teams will be awarded cash prizes sponsored by the CFA Society of Melbourne and the Department of Finance.

Why join the competition?

Bhavya Bagaria competed in 2023 and says, ‘The stock pitch competition offered me hands-on experience that aligned perfectly with my career aspirations in finance and analytics’.

‘The most exciting aspect of the Deakin Stock Pitch Competition for me was the chance to apply the theories and concepts I had learned in a practical, real-world setting … The challenge was daunting at first, but it pushed me to apply and expand my understanding in ways I never knew I could.’

I wholeheartedly recommend joining the Deakin Stock Pitch Competition. I’m grateful for the opportunity as it was more than just trying to win; it was about exploring my passion, challenging myself and receiving detailed feedback that could guide my future efforts in my career path.

‘For anyone looking to enter the finance or equity research fields, such competitions are a golden opportunity to test your skills, learn from the process, and make valuable connections.’
