The Baruch MFE team won the 2016 Rotman International Trading Competition (RITC) that took place at University of Toronto, January 19-20, 2016.

The Baruch MFE team won an unprecedented three of the six events (commodities trading, credit risk, sales & trading), was second in equity valuation, and third in algo trading;

Congratulations to our winners, Sandeep Bangar, Allen Long Chen, Rui Ge, Anik Roy, Mingda Ke, Raymond Wong!

The overall score for first place established a new all-time record (previously held by MIT since 2011) and the difference between first place and second place was more than the difference between second place and seventh place.

A record number of 52 teams representing academic institutions from four continents competed this year, including the Top 5 MFE/Math Finance programs from the 2015 QuantNet Ranking.

This results fits into the consistently stellar performance of our students over the years: 4th in 2014, 3rd in 2013, 1st and 4th in 2012, 3rd in 2011 (did not participate in 2015).
