Feb. 6, 2020

Two Eller College of Management students, Adam Cashman ’20 BSBA (Management Information Systems and Finance) and Ajitha Doniparthi ’19 BSBA (Finance), ranked in the Top 25 Rookies of the ModelOff Financial Modeling World Championship 2019, the largest annual financial modeling event of its kind.

The Financial Modeling World Championship is a global competition that celebrates students and professionals with financial modeling talent. From business to finance to analytics, competitors are given the opportunity to develop their professional skills through a series of online rounds of competition, comprised of financial challenges and case studies. “Rookies” are competitors who are under 25 years old.

“Adam and Ajitha did an excellent job during the ModelOff competition,” says David Brown, assistant professor of finance, who taught their financial modeling course. “Ranking in the top 25 financial modelers out of hundreds of analysts worldwide is a prestigious accomplishment worth celebrating. Through this competition, they have exemplified what we at Eller strive for—to take concepts learned in the classroom and apply them to real-world applications.”
