Schulich MBA Student Wins Top Prize
In North American Derivative Trading Competition

TORONTO, ON ? Thursday, November 17, 2005 ? An MBA student from the Schulich School of Business at York University won top prize in an elite North American competition that measures skill in derivative trading.

Tingmin (Tim) Chen, a second-year MBA student at Schulich specializing in financial engineering, racked up a total of $459,560 in virtual profits, giving him top spot overall. Chen edged out competitors from MIT, Berkeley and Dartmouth to win top prize. All participants in the competition start with $100,000 in virtual cash, and buy and sell contracts in open auctions.

The online competition, known as ?degreeTrade?, is open to graduate and undergraduate students and included competitors from such top-ranked schools as Harvard, Yale and Princeton.

The ?zero-sum? competition, which took place over a four-week period during the month of October 2005, is based on a fictitious market and market rules that allow university students to go head to head in a test of their investment skills and quantitative acumen.

Schulich sucks. Everyone is scratching their head when they see how well Schulich is ranked in business school rankings. They do not deserve their high ranking. By the way, this awards is complete nonsense. Its just a simulation game and it doesnt mean anything at all. Its called luck!

You can speak to anyone in the business world and they will tell you that Schulich is not considered to be the top biz school in Canada. I think Queens or Western would take the honour, certainly not Schulich.
