CIMA Global Business Challenge Now Includes Nigeria
CIMA, the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants has invited entries from undergraduates in universities, polytechnics and monotechnics across Nigeria to participate in this year’s CIMA Global Business Challenge (GBC).
The GBC is an international business competition hosted in conjunction with Barclays across 26 countries. This is the first time that Nigeria will compete in this prestigious competition, which allows undergraduates the opportunity to test their skills and showcase their talent.
National winning teams will travel to Warsaw, Poland, in August to compete in the global final for the title of GBC Global Winners. CIMA offers an international qualification in management accountancy and it is the world’s leading and largest professional body of management accountants with over 227000 members and students in 179 countries.
Full-time undergraduate students with a passion for business and finance are invited to register for the Nigeria GBC challenge by April17. Teams of four compete by analysing a case study based on CIMA’s test of professional competence and submitting a 3000-word report by April 28.
Once reports are submitted and assessed, four teams would be selected for the final short-list. These teams have been invited to participate in the Nigeria final in Lagos on 30 May 2015.
Commenting on the 2015 GBC, Ijeoma Anadozie, Country Manager, CIMA said: “The Global Business Challenge is an internationally acclaimed platform which helps students exhibit the IT knowledge, skills and competency needed to make them future business leaders, while giving them a unique opportunity to test their analytical skills revolving around business and financial management.
We have experienced a positive response from our initial discussions with universities and are expecting to receive hundreds of registrations for the competition.”
