The Egyptian Exchange’s (EGX) simulation programme is scheduled to start on Wednesday, with the goal of providing students at Egyptian universities with practical training on a model of trading securities at the stock market, in addition to qualifying them for the labour market.
The 19th round of the EGX’s simulation activities will kick off at the Canadian International College (CIC).
Five teams representing five Egyptian universities are competing at the simulation from Cairo University, Ain Shams University, CIC, Ahram Canadian University, and Future University.
On the first day, students will attend lectures to discuss the rules of trading at EGX and to highlight the role of securities brokers and those who implement the buy and sell orders, in addition to investment mechanisms.
On the second day, a competition will be held between the five teams. The winner will be the best implementer of the investment plans, both in the role of investors and securities brokers.
The event will come to an end on 8 May.
The EGX simulation began in 1998 at Cairo University. It works to qualify students to become involved in the labour market after graduation. It registered as an Egyptian non-governmental organisation in 2015.
