Three of Baruch MFE students were among the top 40 competitors at the 5th Annual Texas A&M Foreign Currency Trading Competition:
Bhargav Mandadi, ranked 7th, 80% return
Emil Gheorghiu, ranked 20th, 40% return
John Jurcevic, ranked 39th, 20% return
The competition took place over one month in October; 295 graduate and undergraduate students from US academic institutions took part in the competition.
As was the case with the 2009 Interactive Brokers Trading Olympiad, when six Baruch MFE students were in Top 62, the result of our students is notable for the depth of the pool of strong professionals being educated in our (relatively small) program.
