Full-time MBA Team Represents IPADE at Peeptrade University Challenge

Peeptrade Challenge

In April, teams from business school programs around the world gathered in Chicago to compete in the Peeptrade University Challenge, a competition that gives MBA students the chance to manage real investment portfolios funded with real money. IPADE was represented by five participants from the Full-time MBA (MEDE) program at the 2017 event.

“We know that young people are the future of financial markets, and we want to give these young people the chance to gain real experience managing investment portfolios,” said Juan José Mendoza, Founder and CEO of Peeptrade, an online social network for stock investors.
