This yearly event attracts hundreds of talented graduate and undergraduate students who compete for the grand prize, as well as many investment banking and finance professionals.

In an effort to support the development of students in the Investment Banking Industry, Altrum Honors is a proud sponsor of the NIBC competition. In addition to providing custom deal toys for the case competition winners and runner-ups, Altrum also provided awards for the judges, keynote speakers and board members.

Amongst this year’s participants, students from top Canadian schools such as Ivey, Sauder, Queen’s and Rothman were present for the challenge. In total, 70 Universities across North America, Asia and Europe participated in the competition.
