PRMIA Announces 2024 Risk Management Challenge International Finalists

Congratulations to the PRMIA Risk Management Challenge regional winners who will advance to the international finals on March 22, 2024. The 10 finalist teams will compete in two streams of judging sessions. The top team from each stream will compete against each other during the afternoon session for the international championship.

Thirty-three teams representing a total of 130 students competed in this year's Challenge. Eight PRMIA chapters hosted regional round events worldwide to narrow down the field to 10 finalist teams.

This year the students analyzed a case study that addressed the Silicon Valley Bank collapse. Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) was a prominent financial institution that specialized in providing banking and financial services to start-up, technology, life sciences, healthcare, and venture capital firms. Headquartered in Santa Clara, California, SVB played a major role in entrepreneurial activity in Silicon Valley and similar markets around the world.
