Are you ready to start your investing career?

Our annual Case Competition gives you the opportunity to showcase your investing skills by presenting a stock pitch to Point72 with a team from your university. If you’re among the top teams, you’ll earn an all-expenses-paid trip to the Finalist Weekend in NYC where you’ll rise to the challenge of presenting your case to some of Point72’s top investment professionals. Plus, finalists guaranteed an interview for the Point72 Academy Summer Internship Program, and the first place team secures their seats in one of our 2018 Academy Summits.
