MTAEF Awards Emmanuel Sanchez with First Annual Ian Notley Memorial Award on Cycles Research!


The MTA Educational Foundation is pleased to announce that it has awarded its First Annual Ian Notley Memorial Award to Emmanuel Sanchez!  Emmanuel is a junior at Baruch College working towards his BBA in Finance, minoring in Psychology – a natural fit with technical analysis and behavioral finance.

A small committee of the MTAEF reviewed several applications for the First Annual Ian Notley Memorial Award on Cycles Research and selected Mr. Sanchez based his cover letter and CV.  All the candidates from Baruch College were exceptional students with good grades and an interest in the industry.

Mr. Sanchez will be meeting with Jonathan Arter this fall to frame out the research project.  He will be making use of the MTA/MTAEF Library at Baruch with its collection of materials from the Foundation for the Study of Cycles and the Knowledge Base (KB) of the MTA.

Mr. Sanchez will be attending the MTAEF Fall Fundraiser on November 14 and will give an update on the progress of his research into the Long Wave.

The Program

The MTAEF, represented by Professor Bruce Kamich, will select one Zicklin finance student to receive a $2,500 prize. This is a six month commitment on the part of the selected student which requires the student write an original paper on the Kondratieff Cycle or Long Cycle.

The Application

Interested students may apply by June 1, 2013. Please submit a one page typewritten summary of your interest in business cycles and a copy of your CV and send it via email to

The Award

The selected student will receive $500 at the beginning of the project, $500 halfway through the project, and $1,500 on completion of the project, no later than December 15, 2013. The awardee also will receive a two-day expense paid meeting with Jonathan Arter of Taniscott Capital in Connecticut, the sponsor of this prize. Mr. Arter will work with the student to frame out the project and set the direction. Other members of the MTAEF will be available to mentor this student and to make materials available.
