The McGill International Portfolio Challenge (MIPC)

The MIPC provides a rich forum for knowledge and exchange on current sustainability issues, bridges the gap between academia and industry, and provides an excellent experiential learning opportunity for students to tackle real-world problems. 

The MIPC supports the objectives of the CIBC Office of Sustainable Finance by incorporating training, thought leadership, and student engagement aimed at generating new insights and knowledge that will help companies think differently, and more effectively, about incorporating sustainable finance into their investment models.
