Darden at Virginia Investing Challenge

  • Darden@Virginia Investing Challenge

    The 7th annual Darden at Virginia Investing Challenge (DVIC) will be held on 8 November 2018.

    Our stock pitch competition is held in conjunction with the prestigious University of Virginia Investing Conference (UVIC). DVIC brings to Charlottesville teams of students from top MBA programs to compete for cash prizes. 

    The challenge selects a different theme each year to frame each school's stock pitch. Competing teams have the opportunity to present their pitches in front of judges from the investment management industry in a two-round format. 

    The competition provides an ideal training ground for MBA students interested in the investment management profession as it gives students the opportunity to practice their stock pitching skills. Additionally, the challenge leverages UVIC which provides a forum for recruitment and knowledge sharing, as UVIC brings together nearly 500 investment professionals, recruiters, and students each year. 

    Listen to a WSJ podcast featuring an interview with the 2016 winning team, the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. 

    If you are interested in participating in DVIC or recruiting participants at DVIC, please contact DCM Chief Financial Officer, Scott Lusk (lusks19@darden.virginia.edu).
