The Trading Game 2019
We aim to introduce students to finance by organizing conferences, lectures and workshops delivered by various external speakers underlining new trends and controversial topics.
Through one of our main events, The Finance Alumni Meeting, we expose EPFL future graduates to different opportunities available to them in the financial sector.
To enable students to learn and practice in a fun way, we hold various games set up and driven by professionals.
In November, we hosted the first edition of the FX-Battle by Bloomberg. Students from different backgrounds wrote their own trading bot and challenged themselves to outsmart the simulated FOREX market and each other.
Each year, we also organize in partnership with Finance Club HEC Lausanne and Swissquote the largest student Trading contest in Switzerland.
The Trading Game gathered 3000 players coming from 15 swiss universities in 2018, and is back this year.
We like to build connections with other associations and to cultivate new relationships with foreign schools and universities.
In order to connect our students with dynamic professionnals in a more informal setting, we are happy to offer afterwork parties on a regular basis.
