Trading Floor Training
The competition which drew 152 participants from 36 schools throughout Canada, the United States, and Europe challenged students to apply their trading knowledge in real-time simulations and a realistic environment.
“The trading floor competition is a wonderful illustration of experiential learning at its best,” says David Gautschi, dean of the Lally School.
“Our faculty leader, Professor Stephanie Rauterkus, has worked with the students to help them understand the intricacies of how trades are really made under the pressures of a real trading floor.”
A total of 38 teams participated in the competition, including MIT’s Sloan School of Management, Carnegie Mellon University, University of London, and Duke University, among others.
