Rutgers University Wins New York Regional Final of Global IRC

Tuesday, February 22, 2011
(New York, NY)

"We all knew as a team what we wanted and that common goal and passion for financial markets motivated us to outperform our competition. The experience was rewarding because it allowed us to apply practical financial analysis to a publicly-traded company. We were able to apply many lessons from the classroom. But more importantly, we were challenged to learn more and do more than any academic curriculum would dictate, and this showed in our final presentation," the Rutgers team stated. Anil Bhatia, Andre Mendoza, Joshua Cohen, Dmitry Malinsky and Russell Miller led Rutgers to the title. They were followed by Fordham University School of Business in second place, Seton Hall University Stillman School of Business in third place, and Pace University Lubin School of Business in fourth place.
