The CIMA Global Business Challenge – registration now open


Now in its fifth year the 2013 competition is set to be even bigger and better; this year there are 25 countries taking part and the winning team from the UK will represent their university at the global final in South Africa.

What’s involved?

Students will need to register a team of four.

There are three stages to the competition, the first stage consists of writing a report in their teams of four based on a case study that they will be sent upon registration, the shortlisted teams will then progress to the UK final where they will present their findings to a judging panel and the UK winners will proceed to the global final.

What’s in it for the students?

Successful students will get the chance to meet top graduate employers at both the UK final and global final. The UK leg of the competition is sponsored by Barclays, Tesco and Milkround, and amongst other employers who will be present at the UK final, students will be able to pose any questions they may have to the graduate employers. Last year employers at the UK final included Unilever, P&G, Britvic, Amazon, KPMG, Tesco and Barclays; therefore the competition provides a great platform for students to showcase their skills in front of senior business leaders.

The Times recently featured the competition in their graduate supplement career guide stating the competition will help students when they start looking for work and there’s a lot to be gained from the networking involved. David Swainston, P&G, informed the Times that he attended the UK final to see who we identified as the top talent on campus.

The UK were crowned winning champions at last year’s global final; make sure your university is in with a chance of helping the UK retain the crown for another year!
