Visa Global Challenge 2019

Can you build a profitable payments portfolio in 10 weeks? Grab three colleagues and join the Visa Global Challenge, an online learning event and team-based competition, to find out. During this 10-week program, your team of four will compete against other teams from around the world to see who can build the most successful credit, debit and acquiring portfolio, over a 5-year period, in a fictitious marketplace. Spend a few hours a week reviewing market data, learning new payment skills, and entering decisions into the simulation tracker. At the end of each two-week period, you can see how your portfolio is performing against the other teams.

NEW learning materials and a NEW simulation. The new simulation scenario is especially exciting – because it is very similar to today's business climate. You’ll face competition from new players in the market. You’ll need to navigate regulation and fee changes. And your team will need to make some tough decisions surrounding digital wallets, contactless, and how to compete with non-card payment solutions.

All materials and the simulation are facilitated in English. One member of the team should be fluent in English.
