A group of International School students participated in the Wharton Global High School Investment Competition, a case study solving competition, where our students learned how to trade on the stock market and evaluate the best long-term and short-term investment in shares, and for the needs of their client.
The Wharton Global High School Investment Competition is a free, online investment simulation for high school students and teachers. Students work in teams of four to seven, guided by a teacher as their advisor. Together, they learn about teamwork, communication, risk, diversification, company and industry analysis, and many other important aspects of investing.
Students learned more about the trading process, risk assessment and analysis of financial reports
The competition lasted for two months, and students had the opportunity to learn more about the trading process itself, risk assessment and analysis of financial reports. International School was represented by a team of six students who together analysed different industries, made an assessment and based on that made a decision on investments for their client.
Although our students did not make it to the finals, our students gained great experience, as well as the motivation to compete next year.
