The finale of the 16th "Challenge Cup" National College Students' Extracurricular Academic Science and Technology Contest took place on November 7-13 in Beihang University, China.
After rounds of challenges, a project team comprising three students from the International Business School of Beijing Foreign Studies University (IBS BFSU) received the second prize.
The winning project, which is under the tutelage of IBS Professor Li Sifei, centers on the influence that the 2015 governmental deleveraging policy exerts on corporate debts.
With the extensive support from IBS faculties and the Youth League Committee, the project team polished and presented their academic results to the reviewing committee of the Contest with great care and efforts. Their perserverance throughout the process exemplified the innovative, striving-for-excellence spirit of BFSU students.
