Students are Invited to Compete in the 6th Annual PRMIA Risk Management Challenge

Undergraduate and graduate students from around the world will vie to be named the international champion in the 2020 PRMIA Risk Management Challenge, a case competition that empowers students by taking them beyond the classroom and providing exposure to real-world business situations. The Challenge offers the opportunity to apply the concepts they have learned and showcase their knowledge, critical thinking skills, leadership, and presentation abilities. One winning team will be chosen to win up to a US$10,000 cash award.

Competition Overview

The Challenge begins in early January 2020 with an online preliminary round. The top teams from that round are chosen to advance to regional competitions. The winners of the regional competitions will travel to compete in the international finals in April 2020 where they will present their case solutions to an industry panel.
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.
