One of my favorite experiences at Olin was leading a team of master’s students to represent Olin at the Quinnipiac Game Forum’s Global Asset Management Competition. Against more than 120 universities, we emerged victorious due to our fund’s superior performance and our team’s skillful defense of our investment philosophy.
