Congratulations to Team Tsukuba for winning the University Ethics Challenge (Japan Competition) in 2023 organized by CFA Society Japan, achieving the “3 RENPA” of the CFA Ethics Challenge in Japan. We are enormously proud of our team.
We greatly appreciate the strong support from CFA Society Japan, Heiwa Real Estate Co., Ltd., FinCity.Tokyo, Financial Services Agency, committee volunteers and insightful questions and comments from Judges.
Here are the comments from our team members:
“The CFA Ethics Challenge provided us an opportunity to learn not only high-level decision-making skills for ethical dilemmas but also how to show our opinion in a limited time. Our team had definite confidence in our analysis, but came across the difficulty of showing our message effectively due to the complicated story. Our team had never stopped our deep discussion until midnight and could develop sophisticated output at the end with nice teamwork. Having an environment that allows us to learn with classmates who have diverse backgrounds beyond nationality is one of the strong points of MBA-IB. This achievement became my unforgettable experience in the MBA-IB life and would like to express my gratitude to all my teammates, classmates, and mentor Prof. Gu for giving me this opportunity.”

“I am absolutely honored to be receiving such an excellent award.
The CFA Ethics Challenge was a great event for me because I could acquire the skill in ethical decision-making and get valuable feedback from professional judges. I have faced several challenges with high intensity on my way here. Still, my teammates and our mentee Assistant Prof. Gu supported me, so we could make it. Every single moment I spent with them is one of my best memories in the MBA-IB life.
Last but not least, I sincerely thank everyone who organized this event. I would also like to thank my wife for supporting me mentally during this journey.”
