Wharton Global High School Investment Competition


Wharton Global Youth Program


The Real Deal Behind the Competition

The Wharton Global High School Investment Competition isn't your typical high school project. It's an experiential investment challenge where students from 9th to 12th grade dive deep into the world of stocks, strategies, and simulations. And guess what? It's FREE!

Numbers Don't Lie

From last year's competition, the numbers are staggering. Teams from various countries, thousands of students, and numerous advisors participated. And this year? The numbers are only set to rise.

The Core of the Competition

Students are given a real-world scenario. They're handed a case study featuring a potential client, a real Wharton graduate working in business. The task? Collaborate and strategize to meet that client's long-term investment goals. But here's the twist: it's not about the growth of their portfolios. It's about the strength and articulation of their strategies.

With an approved stock and exchange-traded fund list, both domestic and international, students have a playground to experiment. They use the Wharton Investment Simulator (WINS) to buy and sell stocks over 10 weeks. With $100,000 in virtual cash, they're set to conquer the financial world.
