For how much did rapper Jay Z sell a stake in his Tidal streaming service? If you know the answer then pit your knowledge against fellow business school students in this year’s FT MBA Quiz*

The Financial Times is working with Alzheimer’s Research UK to raise money to help find a breakthrough for better treatments, understand the diseases that cause dementia and diagnose people earlier and more accurately.

Business school students can help by brushing up on FT stories and using their skills to raise money.

The MBA quiz takes place on Tuesday March 20 from 6pm at the FT’s London headquarters. Hosted by Andrew Hill, management editor, up to 12 teams of three to six students can test their knowledge of business, economics and global affairs.

There will also be time to network with fellow competitors over a glass of wine. Last year’s quiz saw joint winners Alliance Manchester Business School and Switzerland’s University of St Gallen finally break the run of Imperial College Business School, which had taken the title three years in a row.

The winning team’s business school is crowned by Andrew as the “smartest business school on the planet” and receives a free advertisement in the FT.
