Organization: The Rotman European Trading Competition (RETC) is a three-day event built with the cooperation between the LUISS Guido Carli University of Rome and the Rotman school of Management at the University of Toronto.

Modeled after the highly successful Rotman International Trading Competition (RITC), the European variant illustrates both universities’ commitment to experiential learning and preparing students for the competitive field of finance.

During the competition, students execute trades on the Rotman Interactive Trader (RIT), a proprietary stock market simulator.

Cases are designed to teach students about different asset-pricing and trading strategies employed in the real market. Simulations are used to create a dynamic world where any possible sequence of events can happen. It’s up to the students to devise a proper trading strategy that considers these possibilities, execute a plan, and generate profits under those conditions.

 

Open to: European students

 

When: From August 23rd to August 25th 2018

 

Where: LUISS Guido Carli University of Rome

 

Opportunity Description: The third Rotman European Trading Competition (RETC) will be hosted by LUISS Guido Carli University of Rome from August 23rd to August 25th, 2018.

RETC is a two and a half day invitational event that allows teams from schools across Europe to participate in a simulated market.

Its structure is similar to the very successful Rotman International Trading Competition (RITC) held annually in Toronto, where 50 schools from around the world meet and compete in simulated markets.

The primary goal of the competition is to give students the opportunity to apply their classroom knowledge to actual markets.

RETC will provide a forum for students to interact with each other and learn from each others’ experiences and opinions.



Qualifications: A school can send a team that consists of either MSc/MBA students or undergraduate students. Ph.D. students are also allowed.

There are 4 students per team (two boys and two girls), plus an optional faculty advisor.

Currently the registration is limited to one team per school, one for each European Country. Due to logistical constraints, the maximum number of teams is 51.

 

Application process: It is possible to apply here

 

Fees: 500 € per team (four students plus an optional faculty advisor)
