Angola hosts in September, for the first time, the final of the 2022 international business management simulation contest, called Global Management Challenge.
The event will feature more than 30 groups from around the world, including the hosts.
The Global Management Challenge is a strategic management competition for managers and university students. Participants form teams of 5-8 members to allow the development of skills for managers, company staff, among others.
According to the director of operations at Soik Investments, João Pereira, representative of the organizers of the event, it is a great value for Angola to organize one of the biggest simulation competitions in the world.
João Pereira added that, for the 2023 contest, registrations were already taking place across the country, until 31 May of the current
year, stressing that young Angolans could access the website: www.gms.ao. to participate in this edition.
To participate, he continued, it is sufficient that the candidate has completed at least the first university year, in any course, and is 18 years of age.
He said that the objective for that year is to include young people from all over the country, in order to get rid of the idea that only
“We have the objective of reaching the whole country, with the broadening of the candidacies. We had the opportunity to take the competition to the provinces of Namibe, Benguela and Huíla. We also intend to reach Huambo”, he stressed.
The winners for the 2023 edition will be announced on the 6th of July of the current year.
Launched in Portugal in 1980, the Global Management Challenge has become the largest international strategy and management competition,
achieving, over the years, an enormous success, becoming an event of
high notoriety and visibility.
In Angola by Soik investments since 2007, it contributes to the
training and development of management skills, for university
students, company staff and Angolan managers.
