Two days of professionally-crafted trading scenarios representing two full months in the Energy industry.
The top teams will receive great prizes that should provide a dramatic boost to those looking for a career 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.
Our 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 simulation in the challenge a summary of your performance will be displayed to you. This can help you decide if your trading strategy is working or needs adaption.
The Energy Trading challenge is a competitive team event open to current university students

The ETC 2020 will take place at ESCP Business School's London based campus and we happily welcome teams from around the world. The international travel links are excellent to London, however we do appreciate in some cases this may be too far and costly for some international students to journey, in which case you might want to put on your own event. If you would like to express your interest in an event occurring near your institution, please contact us.
