About the Challenge

The Investment Challenge comprises one day for Year 12 students from across Leeds. Students will compete on campus using the Finance Lab simulation on 25 March.

The competition’s main aim is to promote higher education opportunities and develop students’ business awareness and transferable skills.  The challenge is hosted by Leeds Beckett University and facilitated by 10 Lane Learning.

The competition

The event is a valuable opportunity for your students to meet with employers and educators.

They will experience first-hand the knowledge and skills required to study business and finance-related subjects at university and to pursue careers in the financial services sector.

During the day your students will be competing in pairs against students from other schools playing Finance Lab, an online financial markets simulation game.

The Investment Challenge will be supplemented by presentations to students and teachers and networking opportunities.

Key objectives

The project provides a relevant and engaging way of communicating with young people, and it delivers a positive message about higher education. 

This campus-based event will increase your students’ awareness of higher education opportunities and of the range of courses offered at the Business School.  The Investment Challenge competition will support the development of your students’ employability skills.
