Organization: The Rotman European Trading Competition (RETC) is a three-day event built with the cooperation between the LUISS Guido Carli University of Rome and the Rotman school of Management at the University of Toronto.

Modeled after the highly successful Rotman International Trading Competition (RITC), the European variant illustrates both universities’ commitment to experiential learning and preparing students for the competitive field of finance.

During the competition, students execute trades on the Rotman Interactive Trader (RIT), a proprietary stock market simulator.

Cases are designed to teach students about different asset-pricing and trading strategies employed in the real market. Simulations are used to create a dynamic world where any possible sequence of events can happen. It’s up to the students to devise a proper trading strategy that considers these possibilities, execute a plan, and generate profits under those conditions.

 

Open to: European students

 

When: From August 23rd to August 25th 2018

 

Where: LUISS Guido Carli University of Rome

 

Opportunity Description: The third Rotman European Trading Competition (RETC) will be hosted by LUISS Guido Carli University of Rome from August 23rd to August 25th, 2018.

Its structure is similar to the very successful Rotman International Trading Competition (RITC) held annually in Toronto, where 50 schools from around the world meet and compete in simulated markets.

The primary goal of the competition is to give students the opportunity to apply their classroom knowledge to actual markets.

RETC will provide a forum for students to interact with each other and learn from each others’ experiences and opinions.



Qualifications: A school can send a team that consists of either MSc/MBA students or undergraduate students. Ph.D. students are also allowed.

There are 4 students per team (two boys and two girls), plus an optional faculty advisor.

Currently the registration is limited to one team per school, one for each European Country. Due to logistical constraints, the maximum number of teams is 51.

 

Application process: It is possible to apply here

 

Fees: 500 € per team (four students plus an optional faculty advisor)

 

Useful information: Accommodation costs for RETC 2018, including seven meals (Thursday Dinner, Friday Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner, Saturday Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner), will be fully covered by LUISS. Meals will be served at the university canteen (“mensa”). The Gala Dinner will be held at Villa Blanc.

The registration does also include the free-of-charge sharing of electric cars and assisted-pedal bikes.

Even if you find a problem, you will find a solution as well”. This is how today, at the Opening Ceremony of the Rome International Careers Festival, Eva Ratti defined the role of a researcher. She focuses her attention on PhD, a payed training under a supervisor.

After having graduated from Astrophysics in Italy, Eva Ratti went to the Netherlands and was granted a PhD. Then, coming back to Italy, she became aware of the lack of opportunities for “Philosophiae doctors” who choose to stick with science.

As statistics show, only 5% of those who take a PhD continue with research, while the other 95% have to find another job. That’s why people think that there is no future for research in Italy and most of the Italian researchers leave their country to go abroad.

“Staying abroad helps you open your mind to other cultures, share your opinions, compare ideas and work on yourself. It makes you become a citizen of the world. On the other side, it is difficult to stay away from home, having to deal with another language and a different culture.” Eva said. In order to solve this problem, Eva Ratti decided to create a startup, with the aim of fueling the innovation power of companies and organizations by connecting them with those coming from a scientific research experience who are seeking career opportunities in the corporate world. Although society and science are considered two separate worlds, Eva underlines the fact that these realities are interacting and that “the methods of science affect our everyday life and thinking heavily”. An example to clarify is when you take medicines in a certain way, you trust the pharmacist who sold it to you . The pharmacist trusts the producers of the medicine and these people trust the research.

Eva Ratti stresses the concept that knowing science helps you in many ways since its very nature makes you grow a critical and thoughtful mentality. Ultimately, thanks to these knowledges you’ll less naif and more aware of the world around you. In this sense, for those who choose to get a PhD with true motivation and awareness, applying one's knowledge to everyday life could be an added value, given the fact that researchers are best trained to face the challenges of innovation.
