We are launching a new (free) Inter-University Student Tournament, based on an Economics simulation.
In 2017, HEC Montréal won the tournament. In 2018, Eötvös Loránd University won, Amherst College was second and HEC Montréal completed the podium (all finalists and ranking). Will you follow them?
Registration is possible right now, until April the 2nd, 2020, and the tournament will start January the 27th, 2020. This year, there is no limit on the number of teams from the same university who can participate.
Currently, 264 teams, from 20 countries, are registered.
The qualification phase consists in playing a few years of a mono-player simulation, between January the 27th and April the 9th, 2020 (vs robots behaving like humans did, in previous experiments). You can play when you want, at your own pace.
The 24 best teams (with the additional constraint of a maximum of 5 teams per university/campus) will be qualified for the finals (and scores will be reset).
The finals will be played between May the 12th and May the 21th, 2020.
Both phases are played online.
The winning team will be awarded a voucher around 300€ as a first prize (on amazon or a similar site).
Students can participate on their own, with no need for support from their instructors: The game will require some strategic thinking but there is no prerequisite in economics.
Teams from any university or school are welcome to participate (the tournament is free). This year, there is no limit on the number of teams from the same university.
Be careful, your registration will only be valid once you have received a confirmation email (You should get it in the next 2 hours. If not, please send an email manually to firstname.lastname@example.org, mentioning your university and the emails of your team members).
(deadline for registration: Thursday, April the 2nd, 2020)
