University Trading Tournament
The University Trading Tournament is a regional student competition in trading securities. The project was launched in 2015 by Financial Club. The aim of the competition is to provide an opportunity to students with interest in finance to expand their knowledge of financial markets and gain the sense of applying that knowledge in practice. Currently, the University Trading Tournament (UTT) is the only student competition of that kind in the region. Anyone interested can apply for UTT, but rewards will only be provided for students with status in Croatia or the region.
Members of the Financial Club were awarded with the Rector’s Award in June 2016 due to the successful organization of the University Trading Tournament 2016.
Financial Dictionary is a project of the Financial Club which is the result of cooperation between students of the Faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Zagreb and company Bisnode which specializes in statistics and analysing big data. Members of Financial Club have collected and defined all the financial terms, while marketing students have translated it in clear and understandable way. The Financial Dictionary of the Most Important Economic Concepts contains 425 most important economic terms with relevant core definitions and examples, thematically divided into eight content units (Basic Concepts, Financial Terms, Institutions, Marketing, Taxes and Other State Contributions Business, Legal Terms, and Accounting). Students of both finance and marketing have participated in implementation of this project, which ensures a multidisciplinary approach and broad application of the Financial Dictionary, because the definitions of economic concepts are enriched with clear and comprehensible explanations, as well as examples of everyday life.
