2020 CFA Society Singapore Ethics Challenge
About the CFA Society Singapore Ethics Challenge
CFA Society Singapore is organizing the third University Ethics Challenge. Undergraduates will be introduced a new approach to ethics pedagogy through experiential learning.
The CFA Society Singapore University Ethics Challenge embodies the mission of CFA Institute by promoting “the highest standards of ethics, education, and professional excellence.” In addition, it focuses on many of the elements of CFA Institute’s Future of Finance initiative. Equally as important, it helps prepare those entering the investment profession for the ethical challenges that they will face in the workplace.
How It Works
Each team shall consist of THREE members. Diversity in team members from the same university is highly encouraged.
The Ethics Challenge comprises three segments: Kickoff Meeting (where we provide guidance and training), Singapore Final and APAC Regional Final . Competing teams are given a case study and tasked to identify and analyse the ethical issues. They are then tasked to resolve these issues.
Teams are judged based on their recommended course of action and their ability to identify and analyse dilemmas and violations to the CFA Institute Code of Ethics & Standards of Professional Conduct.
Benefits of Participation
