Seton Hall Team Advances to NYSSA Finals for the Third Time in Four Years

The New York Society of Security Analysts (NYSSA) announced that the Stillman School of Business is among the four finalist teams for its fifth annual Investment Research Challenge.

Last year, the Stillman team took top honors in the research challenge.

For 2007, Stillman is represented by Andrey Botev, Megan Joseph, Theresa Ko, Bill Moore, and Angelo Stracquatanio. Professor Andrew Yi is the faculty adviser.

The Stillman team is joined by teams from Pace University’s Lubin School of Business, Rutgers Business School-Newark and New Brunswick, and The Peter J. Tobin College of Business at St. John’s University. To reach the finals, these four teams bested students from Baruch College’s Zicklin School of Business, Fordham University’s College of Business Administration, and NYU Stern School of Business.

Each team will have 10 minutes to present their research to a panel of senior Wall Street executives and the winner will be selected based on the combined scores of the written report and the presentation.

The presentations will be held on April 18, 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. at Reuters America, 3 Times Square, 7th Avenue and 42nd Street, New York, NY.
