Four University of Arizona students—all Wall Street Scholars—found great success in Vancouver at the National Investment Banking Competition on March 13-14. Under the guidance of their coach, Jeff Welter, director of undergraduate professional development, the team beat out 62 teams of both graduate and undergraduate students from across the world.
The team was comprised of Eller seniors Graham Hutson and Michael Mendelsohn, Eller junior Scott McGill and Udaivir Singh ’19 (Neuroscience).
The NIBC provides hands-on experience and insight into the daily responsibilities of both junior and senior investment bankers. Competitors utilize and develop skills essential for a successful career in investment banking.
“The team built great relationships with executives and recruiters at financial firms during the event,” says Welter. “They competed with great professionalism and with advanced acumen. Eller College faculty and staff couldn’t be happier with their success.”
The 2018-2019 NIBC marked the competition and conference’s 10-year anniversary. This was the first year that Eller College competed. The team spent last week in Vancouver, BC, participating in three rounds of the competition.
