Students from 17 European countries competed in the University of Toronto Rotman School of Management‘s European Trading Competition, where they executed trades on a stock market simulator in “open-outcry” trading pits like those at the world’s major stock exchanges, according to a Sept. 5 announcement. Hosted by LUISS Guido Carli University in Rome, the two-and-a-half-day event also featured five case competitions. BI Norwegian Business School came in No. 1 overall.

Columbia Business School appointed Amanda Carlson as assistant dean of admissions for the MBA and executive MBA programs, according to a Sept. 5 announcement. Before joining CBS in 2002, she worked in campus recruiting for McKinsey. The school also announced that it received a $25 million gift from an anonymous donor. The money will be used to help fund the construction of a new home for the school on the Manhattanville campus and bolster Columbia’s Social Enterprise Program.
