Baruch College’s winning streak at the Rotman International Trading Competition (RITC) continued in 2021 as two teams—composed of four students each—finished in first and second place at this year’s event.
Over the last six competitions, Baruch also secured the top spot in 2020, 2017 and 2016.
“The success of our students is a tribute to their great consistency and self-discipline, their intensive preparation for the competition, and their trading and analytical skills,” said Dan Stefanica, PhD, co-director of Baruch College’s Master of Financial Engineering program. “Our students demonstrated outstanding teamwork throughout.”
The 2021 virtual event, hosted by the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, featured student traders, analysts and risk managers on 45 teams representing 40 universities from across the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, and South America. Each team tackled simulated trading cases that closely mimic different aspects of real-world markets.
