GEMFIN Students in the Boardroom


On May 13th, the Geneva Master of Advanced Studies in Finance (GEMFIN) students participated in a unique intensive day-long Boardroom Simulation Game. The intensive simulation is designed to test students’ ability to solve real-world complex financial problems.

Culminating materials acquired and various skills developed throughout the year, student teams solved a case study on the UBS acquisition of Wealthfront, which was developed especially for the boardroom simulation by Prof. Norman Schürhoff.

Senior financial professionals who acted as board members, gave students a feedback on their work and discussed their solutions to the case.

After an exciting day of strong discussions, lively debates and tough boardroom exchanges, the winning team was announced. Congratulations to Qianyu Yang, Sibo Kwakwa, Chen Cheng and Yu Wang for winning the first prize!

The second place went to Justine Natuplag, Qinqing Li, Elmedin Hasanovic, and Dita Jaja.

And congratulations to all teams for the excellent work!
