Students win the chance to kick-start their banking career with the eFinancialCareers Investment Challenge

Students from any UK or continental European university or business school are being offered a unique chance to kick-start a career in banking and finance today, by entering the Investment Challenge, sponsored by Credit Suisse.

The online trading game enables students hoping for a career in the financial markets to pit their skills against one another by virtually trading European and North American equities using a £10 million fantasy fund over the course of a month. Undergraduate students can register online at Registration for this year’s Challenge opens on 1 July and will close 16 July.
