2019 PRMIA Risk Management Challenge

2019 PRMIA Risk Management Challenge
The PRMIA Risk Management Challenge provides undergraduate and graduate students from multiple disciplines the opportunity to solve realistic business problems with a risk management focus...and win a USD10K prize. We are proud to have MathWorks as a Global Sponsor. Mathworks will facilitate MATLAB licenses for each team to ensure AI models can be built and tested on the platform. The challenge develops and strengthens professional and social relationships. Held in Chicago, Edmonton, Hungary, Ireland, Egypt, London, Montreal, Netherlands, New York, Paris, Poland, Russia, Toronto, & Vancouver.

The challenge uses two cases to simulate up-to-date and real-life risk management challenges to give students practical experiences in financial services and management consulting. You can view a complete list of the Challenge's rules and learn more about this PRMIA initiative.
