Over the past 10 weeks, members of the Mount Saint Mary Academy Investment Club competed in the 2016-2017 Knowledge @ Wharton Investment Competition.
Ms. Kathleen Brennan, Mathematics Department Chair, explained, "Tasked with investing $100,000 in virtual cash, team members developed an investment strategy that focused on diversification and long term growth. The team was able to use the Wharton School's Online Trading and Investment Simulator to place their trades."
The top teams in this international competition will be invited to the Global Finale at the Wharton School in May. The girls submitted an electronic copy of their final project to The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania last week.
