After coming in second place last year, a team of McCombs School of Business students won the 2014 Michigan Undergraduate Investment Conference. The Tower will glow orange on Oct. 21 to celebrate this championship.
The winning Longhorn team included Matthew Rindelaub, finance and economics junior, Vishal Bhat, business honors, finance and radio-television-film sophomore, and Connor Ruddick, finance sophomore. All are members of the University Securities Investment Team.
The Michigan conference bills itself as the largest and most prestigious stock pitch competition in the country. Each year, since 2006, the Michigan Interactive Investments student organization invites more than 20 top business schools from across the country to present stock pitches and compete for a $3,000 top prize.
