The Goodman School of Mines and Laurentian University are sponsoring an investment management competition for undergraduate students. The Goodman Gold Challenge (GGC) competition will be held at Laurentian University in Sudbury February 22 to 25, 2017.
Students will have the opportunity to meet with three CEOs of mining companies currently trading on the TSX or TSX Venture Exchange and interview them about the current and projected financial strength of their company. After thorough analysis, they will recommend one of the companies as a preferred investment.
The competition will provide students with a chance to put their academic credentials to the test.
The competition offers students networking opportunities with industry professionals, business executives, CEOs and sponsors through a series of events.
Students will compete for shares worth the equivalent of four ounces of gold and a paid summer internship with a financial investment company.
Bruce Jago, executive director of the Goodman School of Mines, expects up to 14 universities to take part in what he hopes will be “the most sophisticated, prestigious and realistic investment management competition in the country.”
