Two 6-hour days of professionally-crafted trading scenarios representing two full months in the Energy industry. There are may be other activities and events during the day but the market never stops!
The top team will receive a great prize that could provide a dramatic career boost to those looking for employment in the energy sector.
You will have the chance to interact with experienced industry professionals who have worked at major Energy Companies and Trading Houses.
Thanks to our generous sponsors there is absolutely no fee for participating in this challenge. The only things you are responsible for is getting yourself to the venue and feeding yourself - the student cafeteria will be available throughout the day.
State-of-the-art real-time web-based trading system can be used on any computer with a modern web browser. You can even check the market and your positions on your mobile phone if you are away from your desk.
At the end of each day of the challenge a summary of your performance will be displayed to you as well as your ranking in relation to the other teams in the competition.
The Energy Trading challenge is a competitive team event open to current university students

The ETC 2018 will take place at ESCP Europe's London based campus. While the international travel links are excellent from London, we do appreciate this may be too far for some international students to journey. However from 2019 onward we will be looking to roll out the challenge to other areas around the world. If you would like to express your interest in an event near you please contact us.
