Ethics in finance. Better world
The Ethics Challenge is a new initiative of CFA Society Poland. The Ethics Challenge summons students to analyze a situation with a “grey” area where right or wrong may not be apparent. Student teams are given a case study with an ethical dilemma and present their recommendations to a panel of senior charterholders/judges). A question and answer period follows and a champion is later announced during a cocktail reception.
The Ethics Challenge strives to embody CFA Institute’s global mission to promote “the highest standards of ethics." It touches on many of CFA Institute’s Future of Finance pillars: Transparency and Fairness, Regulation and Enforcement and Safeguarding the System. It also promotes ethical awareness and fosters a healthy financial environment.
How it works
Each team must have three to four (3—4) members. The faculty adviser assembles the team and guides them throughout the process.
Teams will present their analysis and recommendations to a judging panel of CFA charterholders based on the case study by CFA Society Poland. The competition is 100% presentation based; which includes: a 10 minute presentation and then 10 additional minutes to respond to questions from the judges.
Please note: the competition is ENTIRELY IN POLISH.
The first prize is CFA Program scholarship.
