Forget memorising Black-Scholes the night before. Assessors at top institutions are looking for raw skills, not advanced regurgitation. Talent Rank is the only way to prove you have what it takes, irrespective of what you study or what university you attend.
Talent Rank is all about merit. Taking part already puts you well above your competition. But perform well and you can earn a recognised and unique credential, access amazing job opportunities and get invited to the Talent Rank Future Leader Network.
Many candidates secure an interview, but very few nail it on the day. By immersing yourself in business/market scenarios happening right now, not only will you build interview content, your commercial understanding and confidence will be unparalleled.
Candidates decide on a confidence interval representing their analysis of a business scenario. For example, Volkswagen’s share price in the midst of the emissions scandal.
Candidates then compose a 140-character ‘rationale’ justifying this analysis and conveying their ideas as clearly and concisely as possible. This will be judged by their competitors at the next stage.
Finally, candidates bet on three rationales written by other candidates - selecting the arguments that appear to be of the greatest calibre and credibility. For every rationale that turns out to be correct, they earn points.

Talent Rank is currently in the curriculum at University College London, grading Masters students via the course Financial Institutions and Markets.
Following a successful pilot in Spring 2015, Talent Rank is back in the curriculum at Imperial College Business School from January - providing a grading curve for Masters students taking the class International Finance.
Talent Rank gives the user complete control over their identity. This means that unsure or disadvantaged students can improve their skills with zero downside. The tournaments are totally equitable and representative - every user stands the same chance no matter who they are. The anonymous, skill-based nature of Talent Rank means prior knowledge, degree choices and university attended are effectively redundant. Genuine ability is always the deciding factor.
The lacklustre diversity pool available to Recruiters is a universal problem - it’s clear that a significant number of potentially brilliant candidates see certain roles as simply out of reach. With Talent Rank, no longer will a student's financial background, gender or schooling be a determinant of whether they feel they can apply to an internship or graduate position. We are unearthing the true potential in those that underestimate their own ability, giving them the means to prove they are the right candidate regardless of circumstance.
