WE’RE NUMBER ONE — AGAIN!
On Wednesday, April 18, the Stillman School of Business bested business students from Rutgers University, Pace University’s Lubin School of Business and the Peter J. Tobin College of Business at St. John’s University to win the New York Society of Security Analysts’ (NYSSA) Fifth Annual Investment Research Challenge. In previous rounds, the team defeated New York area schools such as Baruch, Fordham, New York University and Yale University.
Seton Hall is the first school to win the event twice and now goes on to the international competition scheduled for Thursday, April 26, 2007, at U.S. Trust in New York.
In addition, the Stillman School receives a cash prize of $5,000 and has been invited to ring The NASDAQ opening bell on Monday, April 23. This is the School's fifth time opening or closing a major international market.

Students Bill Moore, Megan Joseph, Andrey Botev, Theresa Ko, Angelo Stracquatanio represent the School.
“For the last eight months, the team has dedicated itself to the research challenge,” says Stracquatanio. “The win is a culmination of our time and efforts and makes me even more proud to be a student at one of the best business schools in the country.”
Megan Joseph agrees that it “feels great to win after all of the hours of hard work.”
Professors Tony Loviscek, Ph.D., and Andrew Yi, Ph.D., served as advisers. Timothy McGlinn, CFA, senior research analyst at Train, Babcock Advisors LLC, served as team mentor.
The team’s winning written and oral presentation convinced the judges of the merits of their investment recommendations for Tasty Baking Company. Included in the presentation were research results from both the Center for Securities Trading and Analysis and the Seton Hall Sports Poll Conducted by The Sharkey Institute.
“The team has made great use of our Centers for Academic Excellence, Centers made possible through donations from our alumni and friends,” notes Karen Boroff, dean of the Stillman School.
