Our International Flagship event

Global Case Competition at Harvard

Claimed as one of the leading (undergraduate) case competitions by the Corporate Finance Institute (CFI), the Global Case Competition at Harvard (GCCH) is one of the world’s most prestigious case competitions organized by students. With this case competition, we intend to deliver a world-class learning experience through a hands-on business case, while providing networking opportunities to connect aspiring analysts with leading firms.

Major Events

IFSA Internship Talks

The Rotterdam chapter of the IFSA Network hosts a recurrent and insightful opportunity for all interested students at Erasmus University Rotterdam with each edition of Internship Talks focusing on different fields of finance explained through the views of fellow students who have experienced these fields themselves.

Given the success of Internship Talks, we have decided to turn it into an online edition!

IFSA Traders' Cup

Organized in 2017 and 2018, the IFSA’s Traders’ cup was the largest student-organized trading competition in the world. Student teams each received $100,000 cash to trade various US stocks, funds and ETFs and the team with the highest returns on the initial capital won the competition.

BCG Case Competition

Introduced in 2018, the Cape-Town chapter, in cooperation with BCG and InvestSoc, organised the three-week long International Cape Town Case Competition. Teams of excellent students proposed solutions to the housing crisis faced by the inhabitants of Cape Town in front of a select panel of distinguished professors and renowned practitioners directly in Cape Town, South Africa.
