Baruch MFE – Third year in a row in Top 3 at the Rotman International Trading Competition

 

The Baruch Financial Engineering Program won 3rd place (out of 48 teams) at the Rotman International Trading Competition held in February 2013 at University of Toronto.

This is the third year in a row a Baruch MFE team is in Top 3 at RITC (after winning the competition in 2012 and placing 3rd in 2011)! This consistency, unprecedented at RITC, coupled with the 2nd place for the Baruch MFE Program in the IAFE Case Competition, highlights the breadth of knowledge of our students at highly competitive levels.

Results:

Top 5:
1. Laval University
2. Chulalongkorn University (Thailand)
3. Baruch College
3. University of Toronto
5. BI Norwegian Business School (2012 winner of the European Rotman Competition)

The Baruch MFE team ranked in top five in four of the six parts of the competition:

Quant Outcry – 1st
Options Trading – 2nd
Sales & Trader – 2nd
Algo Trading – 3rd

A record number of US-based MFE/Math Finance programs participated this year: Baruch (3rd place), Berkeley (38), Boston University (29 and 37), Chicago (12 and 41), NYU (35), Rutgers (32).

Congratulations to our students, Andrew Chang, Juan Pablo Alonso, Kenneth Chan, Richard Postelnik, Kelvin Zhang, and Sean Zhang! (Kelvin and Sean were also members of the IAFE team.)
