The team will now represent the region at the global final in South Africa at the end of August, which will see 24 teams from across the world compete for the CIMA trophy. This is the second year in a row that a team from Middlesex wins the regional finals. Last year’s winners went on to secure a spot in the top six teams globally after a thrilling finale in Sri Lanka.
The CIMA Global Business Challenge is an annual competition which requires students to analyse a case study based on a set of scenarios, and provide innovative solutions and recommendations to the Board on how to proceed. The competition attracts thousands of entries from all over the world and this year Middlesex University Dubai was one of only six teams in the Middle East Region that made it to the Regional Finals, out of more than 100 entries.
