International Economics Olympiad

Students participating in the Company Programme have the great opportunity to apply for the International Economics Olympiad through an application video. The 10 best candidates are selected from all participants.

The International Economics Olympiad 2020 took place online from 7 to 13 September. The four finalists were able to compete against 28 nations. A total of 130 students took part. Silvan Thut succeeded in bringing home a bronze medal.

"What I liked most was working with the team and the fact that we were able to spend time together despite the current situation".
