Bissett School of Business would like to congratulate the winning team of the 2018 CFA Society Winnipeg Ethics Challenge: Dylan Assen, Tiffany Doyle, Harrison Kozak, Andy McAuley, Graham Perry and Faculty Adviser, Catherine Roy Heaton.
Our Bissett team competed against six other universities that are members of the CFA Institute University affiliation program and/or embed financial ethics into their curriculum. Those institutions include the University of Alberta, University of Calgary, University of Saskatchewan, University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg.
“The teams had four weeks to analyze and evaluate a case which presented several ethical dilemmas and then identify the violations of the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct.” Students presented their findings, gave recommendations and were grilled by a panel of industry professionals. Bissett Chair and faculty adviser of the team, Catherine Roy Heaton, indicated the students excelled through their preparation and work ethics, teamwork, strong presentation skills, comprehension of the Code and Standards and the ability to apply their learned acumen to “real world applications” is what made them the stand out team.
The team will be representing Bissett at Nationals in Vancouver this coming May, competing against the top teams from across Canada. Bissett School of Business wishes the students a successful showing in Vancouver and would like to extend our thanks to Cathy for her continued dedication and mentor-ship to the CFA Ethics team!
