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.
