Rotman International Trading Competition 2017

Position: RITC Volunteer

Location of Work: Rotman School of Management


For RITC, we are looking for 25 volunteers to assist with logistical preparation for the competition, as well as assisting international student teams attending RITC. Tasks during the competition involve helping the BMO Financial Group Finance Researching and Trading Lab staff run cases as well as assisting teams, answering common questions, ensuring your teams know where to go, and to ensure that the teams enjoy their competition/trip experience. Volunteers will also help with planning and preparation in the week leading up to the competition. This preparation includes tasks such as nametags, information booklets, sponsor swag bags, etc.

For a volunteer, this would be an excellent opportunity to gain exposure to the BMO Financial Group Finance Research and Trading Lab. Further, volunteers have the opportunity to meet and network with students, professors, and sponsors worldwide. As most lab staff will be running cases behind the scenes, the volunteers we hire will be representing Rotman to almost 400 international representatives.

The Rotman International Trading Competition (RITC) is an annual event held in the heart of Canada's financial district, downtown Toronto. Hosted by the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto, the competition brings teams of students and faculty from universities worldwide to participate in a unique 3 day conference. RITC utilizes simulated trading cases that closely mimic different aspects of real world markets. Having developed these cases in the state of the art Financial Research and Trading Lab, RITC promises to present teams with challenges that are pertinent to current market trends. While past competitions have been very successful, we continue to improve on the old cases and introduce new ones.
