The approach we took towards creating the competition, was to draw upon our root in training in the capital markets. We wanted to provide students the same type of challenges that they would encounter in a new Analysts or Associate program.
Participants experience an incomparable simulation of real-world trading while demonstrating their abilities to analyze, strategize, make decisions, and give presentations. They get an invaluable glimpse into the real world of the capital markets as well as true insight into themselves and their suitability to a finance career.
The UTC lets finance students compete in intense, interactive competitions.
GET NOTICED: The UTC is your opportunity to showcase your skills and trading abilities to guests from the world of finance and banking. Get the opportunity to interact and ask questions direct to these people to what it’s really like in banking from their experience.
The UTC is your opportunity to show them you’re ready by demonstrating your trading abilities and showcase your potential to the right people.
LEARN BY DOING: Classroom study is the core of any education, but we learn best by doing. Students who compete in the University Trading Challenge, a simulated real-market competition, gain intense insight into the real world of commodities trading—and their own talents and abilities.
TAKE FLIGHT: You and your fellow student participants are tomorrow’s finance leaders. After taking part in the UTC, you will hit the ground running, thanks to everything you’ve learned and experienced, and all the influential people you’ve met.
Participating schools, their faculty, and corporate sponsors also benefit from the UTC. See our Benefits page for more information.
