Global Stock Market Challenge
In the CME offices, Belfast, on the 13th March, 4 year 11 Business Studies pupils attended the Global Stock Market Challenge Belfast Finals after placing in one of the top 6 in the region. During the final, pupils were given a client who they had to make investments for based on their preferences and background. Following that, a presentation was given by the group to two judges and the other schools about why they invested in certain companies and the strategies they employed. After a poor start on the opening day of trading on the stock market, the pupils managed to come in 2nd place in the investment challenge and overall placed 4th. They faced some stiff competition from local schools and did the College proud. Pupils involved were Eoin Hackett, Sean Hagans, Christopher McLean and James McEwan.
