Zarb graduate students recently competed in a Martin B. Greenberg Trading Room Simulation with Rotterdam School of Management students from Curacao, Lebanon, and Mexico.
The overseas students are enrolled in the Rotterdam School of Management’s (RSM) Financial Executive Management program — with the Curacao cohort visiting New York for the competition. Organized by Oxyor, a Netherlands-based company offering executive training sessions to the financial services industry, the event began with an introduction to market trading and analysis followed by the competition.
The universities and professors in charge of the program are Dr. Jaap Spronk, Rotterdam School of Management; Dr. Karen Watkins, Universidad Popular Autónoma del Estado de Puebla; Professor Renny Maduro, University of Curacao; Professor Karim Jazzar, ESA Business School, Beirut, Lebanon; and Dr. Anoop Rai, Dr. Ahmet Karagozoglu, and Dr. Nancy White from Hofstra University’s Frank G. Zarb School of Business.
