GEMFIN Students in the Boardroom


Concluding the academic year, our GEMFIN (Master of Advanced Studies in Finance) students participated this month in a unique intensive day-long boardroom simulation game.


Student teams solved a real-world complex financial problem, culminating materials acquired and skills developed throughout the year. The case study on the UBS acquisition of Wealthfront, 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 Alanood Almadi, Alina Amangeldiyeva, Mara Sartori and Hua  Xing for winning the first prize!

The second place went to Daniel Bilong, Shisong Cui, Josué Mathieu and Jacques Sale.

And congratulations to all teams for the excellent work!
