Broyhill Fellows

Each year five members are selected from the Bowden Investment Group to participate in annual CFA Research Challenge. The CFA Institute Research Challenge is an annual global competition that provides university students with hands-on mentoring and intensive training in financial analysis. Students work with a mentor and are tested on their ability to value a stock, write an analyst report, and present their recommendations.

The Bowden Invesment Group has made a name for itself competing with top schools around the country. The BIG Broyhill Fellows Team has had great success in this challenge. Each year the group competes with some of the top business schools in the nation, some of which are compromised of graduate students. Appalachian has become the "school to beat" in the CFA Research Challenge and we look to continuing this legacy in the future.
