The Investment Challenges are run as online or university-hosted competitions using the Finance Lab simulation.
Each participating school and college is provided with a free site licence of the three Global Investor simulation games, Finance Lab, and Dealing Room.
The competitions' key objectives are to enable students to apply their learning in Applied Maths and Business, and to develop business awareness, transferable and employability skills and enterprise and entrepreneurship.
The inter-school competitions use the Trading Floor simulation and involve 20 to 30 schools in each UK region.
The day events are sponsored and supported by a number of universities, EBPs and businesses.
Thousands of Year 9 to Year 12 students from hundreds of UK schools and colleges have taken part since the competition began in 2003.
... and get free use of the simulations for all your students.
