Event update regarding coronavirus


GAME Forum X rescheduled for March 25-27, 2021

We have made the difficult decision to reschedule the Quinnipiac University GAME Forum X. 

We have been closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19. We understand the anxiety that so many of us are likely experiencing during this time of unprecedented health challenges and unknowns.

While we were committed to holding the forum, the well-being of our 1,300-plus attendees, including students, faculty and speakers is our priority. We considered input from attendees and speakers, as well as the impact of growing travel restrictions during March.

All current paid event registrations will automatically be valid for the rescheduled conference on March 25-27, 2021. We will send you an updated registration code when registration opens in the fall. If a refund is preferred, please email your request to qgame@qu.edu.

We will still hold the Global Portfolio Competition. If you are interested in the competition, and have not done so, please e-mail your competition kits to qgame@qu.edu by March 31, 2020. We will still accept them until that date. The top three teams in each category will be announced on our website and via e-mail.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We appreciate your support and understanding, and look forward to seeing you at our rescheduled GAME Forum X on March 25-27, 2021.

Taking the stage

Thomas Crociata ’16, MBA ’17, introduces the keynote speakers at the G.A.M.E. Forum in Manhattan. “This is my second year attending G.A.M.E. and I am once again amazed that this impressive list of industry leaders from around the globe have come together to share best practices and answer our questions," he said.

The Student Experience

From the classroom to the Big Apple

It’s rare for a conference of this size and visibility to be hosted by students.

In the months leading up to the conference, each student organizer has a lot riding on his or her shoulders, from managing a team to communicating with speakers and attendees. Their work puts them in direct contact with presenters, often a “Who’s Who” of financial industry leaders: Douglas Cote, CFA, VOYA Investment Management, David Darst, Americana Partners, Eileen Murray, Bridgewater Associates, and Dr. David Kelly, CFA, of J.P. Morgan Funds, among other notables. 

Students gain new perspectives not only from speakers, but also from students across the country and from overseas who look at world events through the lens of their own experience. They also have the opportunity to participate in the Global Portfolio Competition.

“Nowhere else can someone close the stock market, meet with chief investment officers of top investment firms, compete in a student-managed portfolio competition against international teams, and meet students and professionals from across the U.S. and 54 countries, all while staying in the financial capital of the world, New York City, for three days.”
