How it works

You will be given $1M in virtual currency to trade real financial securities in our online simulation. The objective is to learn how to build wealth by managing an investment portfolio that can balance both risks and profit. Top performers could win an internship in the trading division at Credit-Suisse (Australia or Hong Kong). Even if you don't pursue a career in Finance, these learnings could be valuable in your personal life.

Challenge Types

Depending on your preferences and graduation date you will be put into 1 out of 3 challenges. Only penultimate students playing this challenge can earn a paid internship opportunity on Credit-Suisse Asia's Equities desk.
