Call for Participation - Second Annual Global Network Stock Trading Competition
The Yale School of Management Stock Trading Game is an educational tool intended to provide a fun, quick, and effective introduction to the concepts and mechanics of capital markets and stock trades. Designed by Roger Ibbotson, Emeritus Professor of the Practice of Finance at Yale School of Management, the game has become a beloved tradition among Yale SOM’s 1st-year EMBA students. The Stock Trading Game is intended for use in a classroom setting with individuals of all levels of experience.
The goal of bringing the game to the Global Network is to provide participating students with an opportunity to compete and connect with students across the Network all while practicing their trading skills at any level. The game creates friendly competition amongst students and is a fun way to come together annually. We plan to host games regionally the first week of February 2022, and then the regional winners will compete in a final game during the third week of February 2022.
The games take about 25 minutes and are all done virtually. Yale SOM will also be of support during each game. The ultimate prize for the students participating in the final game is that Roger Ibbotson will attend virtually to debrief the game and chat with the group. The game winner will receive a signed certificate from GNAM and Professor Ibbotson. We will be sure to announce the final winner on the GNAM website and across social media.
