EquitySim

EquitySim is an online financial market simulation that comes. The simulation’s purpose is twofold. The first purpose is to provide experiential education to students, and the second is to provide equal opportunity to careers in finance for students.

Through the simulation, students will manage a portfolio and over time the firm’s algorithm identifies top-performing candidates for job opportunities who show potential based off of their learning curve, risk management, and research, not portfolio return.

Students are encouraged to learn and document their learnings to be connected to jobs at EquitySim’s partnered investment banks: JP Morgan, Credit Suisse, and Goldman Sachs, among others.

Please find some additional information here to get a better understanding of the platform. You can register at equitysim.com/register
