PAU Marks Debut Appearance at the CFA Research Challenge with Impressive Performance

Pan-Atlantic University secured fourth place overall and one of our students won the prestigious Best Presenter Award at the CFA Research Challenge, which took place over the weekend. It was intense and our students gave their best as it was their first time participating in the challenge.

University of Lagos secured the first-place position, followed by Obafemi Awolowo University, in the second-place position and University of Ibadan in the third-place position.

In addition to our commendable fourth-place finish, Kaothar Rufai, a 300-level Economics student at PAU, not only contributed to our team’s success but also won the prestigious Best Presenter Award. Her exceptional presentation skills stood out among the participants. As a testament to her outstanding performance, Kaothar is scheduled to meet with the Managing Director of Zenith Bank later this month.

This opportunity reflects not only Kaothar’s individual excellence but also highlights the calibre of talent nurtured at Pan-Atlantic University.

A special congratulations to the students who made this achievement possible: Peter Ikpati, Christopher Udora, Kaothar Rufai, Khadijat Shittu, and Mr. Innocent Unah, our dedicated Faculty Adviser.
