The Rotman International Trading Competition (RITC) is an annual event that brings teams of students and their faculty advisors from universities worldwide to participate in a unique 3-day simulated market challenge.

Teams are invited to participate in various activities including electronic and outcry trading cases, seminars with industry practitioners, and social events with their fellow competitors from around the world. In past years, RITC participants have competed in a diverse range of cases including open outcry, options, liquidity and algorithmic trading. Faculty advisors are invited not only to coach and observe their teams, but also to participate in various workshops on the Rotman Interactive Trader (RIT), the software used to run the competition.

RITC is consistently innovating, bringing new developments to its own competition with each successive year. Each year classic cases are re-vamped and new cases are added.

The competition has grown not just in scope, but also in international exposure. Last year, RITC hosted 50 teams from 47 different universities from Africa, Asia, Europe and North America. The global representation grants a valuable opportunity for like-minded future finance professionals to meet their peers from across the globe.
