The Chartered Financial Analysts (CFA) Society of Jordan, part of the international CFA institute, has launched its annual research challenge for university students in cooperation with the Arab Potash Company (APC).
APC was chosen for the second year running to be the subject company of research prepared by competing students.
In this competition, five teams, representing five Jordanian universities, prepare and submit an equity research report about a public shareholding company.
The winner in the local competition proceeds to the regional competition which will be held in Milan, Italy, and the winner moves on to the international competition which will take place in 2014.
APC financial controller Mohammed Al Razem gave a presentation to competing students about APC, to give them the background for their research.
APC intends to provide university students of economics and finance an opportunity to gain practical experience that will enhance their academic qualification when they enter the labor market after graduation. – TradeArabia News Service
