The competition aims to enhance the quality of finance education in the country, and at the same time expose the participants to world-class finance education standards.

The questions cover topics ranging from corporate finance to economics based on the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Level 1 body of knowledge.

In last year’s ICFC, 84 colleges and universities from all over the country participated in the eliminations round, 20 of which advanced to the finals.

Four foreign international schools joined the finals round of the competition—Singapore Management University, National University of Singapore, Chulalongkorn University of Thailand and Assumption University of Thailand.

For the young Filipino prides in finance, Citi provided a cash prize for the top three winning teams: P100,000 for the champion, P60,000 for the first-runner-up and P40,000 for the second-runner-up teams.
More than that, Citi held its 6th Citi Junior Bankers’ Congress, a three-day intensive practical banking course patterned along the lines of the University Banking Course, in the pursuit to enhance the Philippine education in finance.
