Team Yeshuas from Kenyatta University won the top spot at the Global Management Challenge (GMC) National Competition held in Nairobi attracting over half a million people from over 30 countries.
The team will represent Kenya at the GMC International Finals which will be held in Doha, Qatar in April.
“The GMC provides a great platform for mentorship; we have already began identifying talented young people who can be well placed in corporate Kenya, or who, with the right support, can embrace entrepreneurship successfully,” Ravi Shah, GMC Kenya co-founder finished. “We are always looking to grow our influence and work with new individuals and companies who share our vision.”
The GMC is the biggest global strategy and management competition held every year, and offers competitors an alternative platform for young men and women to learn what leadership in business really entails.
This is the third time the competitions have been held in Kenya and GMC says there is increasing interest from competitors and potential businesses partners continue to grow.
Other teams that performed impressively at the national finals included the team from Profiles International who were runners up, Militarium from the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture & Technology who took third place, and the management team from Antarc Furniture in fourth place.
The teams were judged by the performance of their ‘companies’ in investments made, growth of assets, market value, as well as share price.
Other companies represented included Centum Investments, Tarpo Industries, Star Times and CopyCat Group.
The next edition of the GMC Kenyan chapter will be launched in June.
