Ace Manager 2015: 7th round of the BNP Paribas international online game for university students

BNP Paribas is inviting entries for its «Ace Manager 2015» online game, which is aimed at raising its profile at universities throughout the world, for the seventh year running. This international game, which is based on case studies in the banking sector, is open to all students under 26 in higher education (Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree level). Exceptionally, BNP Paribas is opening this 7th round to all audiences this year. Everyone can take part, but only students under 26 who put together a team of three people (all under 26) will be eligible for inclusion in the global ranking. The final round and awards will remain reserved for students, although everyone can take part in this venture. BNP Paribas is offering everyone the opportunity to find out about the real economy, to step into a banker’s shoes, and throw themselves into a business venture, including young professionals, pensioners, and business leaders, etc. Everyone will be able to improve their business English, and take part in an extraordinary

3-D
experience for almost 17 days!

What is new this year?

Two sessions will be opened in order to comply with the constraints of each region (Asia, Europe, and the Americas). Students will be able to take part in both sessions, and their best ranking will be retained for the final selection.

Following the two sessions, the 10

top-ranked
teams will be selected to take part in the final round, which will take place in early July 2015.

In early 2015, a «Knowledge Centre» platform will be available at Acemanager.bnpparibas.com, where students will find the previous years’ case studies, which will enable them to gain a better understanding of the competition. Each case study will be presented with its detailed solution, and enhanced by additional teaching materials.
Students will also find quizzes on financial topics, and personal accounts from experts in the BNP Paribas Group, which will give them improved guidance on the Bank’s business lines.

«Ace Manager 2015» has been designed with BNP Paribas’
