Learning Challenge

If you are asking yourself these questions: 

  • How can I take my investment skills to the next level? 

  • Am I ready to manage my own money?

  • Could I be a good fit for a career in Finance?

An EquitySim Learning Challenges can help illuminate the way. 

What are Learning Challenges?

The concept of a learning challenge, is to focus on completing tasks and solving a specific metric on EquitySim. We'll track your results throughout the challenge and award badges and a certificate that validates your results.

Through the challenge you could even win scholarships or job opportunities at major financial institutions.

You'll also join other learners, and can study their strategies to improve your own. This environment will push you to new levels of learning. 

Are you ready for the challenge? 

Note: If you've joined EquitySim through an educational institution, you are likely already part of a learning challenge. 

Achievements - Badges & Certificates

Each challenge will have its own set of rules and metrics. At the end of each learning challenge, you will gain a link to your digital portfolio that outlines your performance and all of the challenge badges you earned. Certificates verify your work and can be used on your resume, Linkedin, or shared to show your progress to your peers.

Finalist's Group - Recruitment Opportunities 

Additionally, throughout each challenge, our scouts will be searching for top talent to join our Finalists group. Finalists will meet each other and will gain access to private recruitment resources. We highlight Finalists to our recruitment partners. 

Note: the critical thing our scouts look for is learning potential, so don't worry if you have little or no experience in the field.
