Pershing Square Challenge
The Pershing Square [Philanthropic] Challenge marks the culmination of a three-month competition among roughly forty teams of first- and second-year Columbia Business School Students. Bill Ackman, founder and CEO of Pershing Square Capital Management LP, launched the challenge in 2008. The challenge is open to students who are enrolled in Applied Security Analysis.
After an initial round of eliminations, five final teams present at the Pershing Square Finals event, hosted by Bill Ackman. A panel of judges then selects the winning teams, which receive a financial prize from Pershing Square. In maintaining the original goal of educating students who are ready to take on leadership roles as value investors, students shall decide the amount of the prize that they wish to keep and the amount that they wish to donate to a charitable organization.
