This competition, which involves teams from a selection of International Universities, challenges its participants to solve a case study of Econometrics subsequently evaluated by a jury of independent and qualified professors.
The UC3M Department of Economics has won the competition three times since 2007 (the first year of participation of the Department of Economics). In 2018, the team composed by Miguel Ángel Cabello, Yuhao Li, Francisco Pareschi and Julius Vainora, won the contest ahead of Harvard and Copenhagen University teams in a competition in which 30 universities participated. The UC3M is one of the few universities that has won the award three times.
