The School of Business at Portland State University recently celebrated a second-place finish in the Portland CFA Institute Research Challenge and advancement to the semifinals at the ACG Cup Northwest.
I would urge anyone not to be afraid to take chances. Be bold and step out of your comfort zone. The last five years of school have been some of the most turbulent in my life, yet I am grateful for the challenges along the way.
The focus on applied learning helped solidify concepts that I had only previously learned about in lectures or books. The faculty here really helped me build the skills I needed to be able to communicate with my managers or peers who don’t come from a finance background.
