We would like to share with you our recent updates on the Academic side. Because Finance never sleeps…

BNP Paribas – Ace Manager Business Challenge

IE Business School students aged 18 to 26 are invited to take part in the BNP Paribas Ace Manager Business Challenge. Ace Manager is an innovative online game that challenges students to step into the shoes of a banker and experience the Bank’s three core businesses – Retail Banking, Investment Solutions and Corporate & Investment Banking.  In teams of three, students solve business case simulations, combining management, strategy, marketing and financial know-how.

We are sure the recruited talent in our masters will excel as every other year!
