ICBC FinTech Innovation Competition for National College Students Officially Kicks off

Organized by ICBC, the 2019 ICBC FinTech Innovation Competition for National College Students recently kicked off, which is available for all undergraduates, postgraduates and doctoral students from full-time higher education institutions. Students who make it to the final round of the competition may have access to ICBC campus recruitment via green channel. This year marks the 10th consecutive year that ICBC has hosted this event.

According to ICBC, this year’s competition will be held from July to November, encouraging students from China’s colleges and universities to propose valuable, practical and innovative ideas on financial hot spots, FinTech and financial scenario designing. It is worth mentioning that, in order to adapt to the trend of speeding up financial and technological integration, ICBC has made the following improvements: Firstly, the competition was renamed from Financial Innovation Competition to FinTech Innovation Competition, emphasizing the role of FinTech in banking business. Secondly, in addition to college students majoring in finance, this year’s competition embraces students with other professional backgrounds. Thirdly, business creativity and technological practicality will be treated with equal emphasis in review to increase the role of FinTech application.

It is learnt that, in the years following the first competition held by ICBC in 2010, this event has attracted more than 2 million students from over 1,000 colleges and universities in China, boosting more than 17,000 pieces of works, and cultivating a large number of creative-thinking talents in an efficient manner. Some of the outstanding ideas have been brought to life and put into use.
