Overview

Be a part of an award-winning student competition, now in its 6th year. The Risk Management Challenge, a competition of the PRMIA Institute,  is a case competition that empowers undergraduate and graduate students by taking them beyond the classroom and giving them exposure to real-world business situations. The Challenge offers students the opportunity to apply the concepts they have learned and showcase their knowledge, critical thinking skills, leadership, and presentation abilities.

Students say one of the highlights of their experience is the chance to grow their professional network and gain insight into the risk industry as they meet with students, faculty, and risk leaders from around the world. For additional information about the competition and to learn more about the rules and structure, view the Program Handbook. You may also view two sample case studies: Example 1 and Example 2.

We are proud to have MathWorks as a Global Sponsor and host of the international finals at its headquarters in Natick, Massachusetts, USA, outside of Boston. MathWorks will provide complimentary MATLAB licenses for each team to use for competition purposes.
