Student Investment Challenge III
Nowadays, there is an ever increasing number of students from Vietnam pursuing a financial degree in the UK. With the aim to create a compelling intellectual playground for the students, VietSoc City University, in collaboration with VietPro (Vietnamese Professionals in the UK), is organizing the third ever Student Investment Challenge (SIC III).
The Student Investment Challenge is the only virtual stock investment competition for Vietnam students in the UK and also is one of the largest-scale of its kind.
SIC provides an invaluable opportunity for students to apply knowledge and skills learned through trading on the London Stock Exchange – a world-leading stock exchange.
With total prizes of up to £ 1,750, the competition is also an opportunity for students to demonstrate and improve their securities trading skills.
To participate in the competition, contestants will participate in teams (from 3 to 4 members per team ) and undergo two rounds . Round one - virtual stock investment will be held for 10 weeks starting on 04/11/2013 and ends on 10/01/2014. Five teams with the highest results based on the total return on investment and investment analysis report will be selected in the second round - the final round, which will take place on 15/02/2014. Each team will be competing through a series of challenges from multiple choice questions to case study presentations and debate. The winning team will be chosen by judges - experts in the financial field from our sponsors and other leading companies.
Contest details are posted on www.vietpro.org.uk and https://www.facebook.com/2013sic
