The Trading Arena Where Students Battle It Out: The 2023 CME Group University Trading Challenge

Ever thought college was just about textbooks and lectures? Think again. The CME Group is back with its University Trading Challenge, turning classrooms into trading floors and students into future trading moguls.

A Brief Dive into the Challenge

The CME Group University Trading Challenge isn't your typical college competition. It's a global arena where students from accredited colleges and universities dive deep into the world of futures trading. And guess what? It's not just about making virtual profits; it's about learning, strategizing, and understanding the dynamics of global markets.

Key Deets You Can't Miss

  • When's the Showdown? The competition kicks off on Sunday, October 1 at 5:00 PM CT and wraps up on Friday, October 27 at 4:00 PM CT.
  • Who Can Join? If you're a student enrolled in a graduate program, this is your chance. But remember, recent grads, this isn't your playground. And no mixing and matching students from different universities. Keep it purebred.
  • Where's the Action? If you're from the US, UK, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, South Korea, Taiwan, or Japan, you're in. Sorry, Quebec, you'll have to sit this one out.
