Darden at Virginia Investing Challenge

The Darden Capital Management team seeks to further enhance student educational experience with pitch competitions, research, and other activities.

The 13th annual Darden at Virginia Investing Challenge (DVIC) stock pitch competition will take place at the Darden School of Business in Charlottesville, VA on 14 November 2024.

Our stock pitch competition is typically held in conjunction with the University of Virginia Investing Conference (UVIC). DVIC brings teams of students from top MBA programs to Charlottesville 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 investment professionals, recruiters, and students each year.
