Curtin Business Cup Challenge

From Saturday 24th of November 2018 until Saturday 24th of November 2018

We are proud to sponsor the Business Cup Challenge (BCC) this year. Curtin Business Cup Challenge 2018 is getting much more exciting with over 700 students from across the UAE participating in this 4-week inter-school challenge and lots of prizes to be won. The grand finale is on 24 November 2018.

It is a unique platform that brings together the finest students and brightest business ideas from schools throughout the world. BCC was introduced in 2011 by Transnational Academic Group, through its partner universities and has increased in popularity each year.

The Business Cup Challenge launches high school students into the business world at a young age. In this competition, students are required to review and implement real-life business plans, analyze crucial business situations and present a case to an academic and professional panel. Students will also get the opportunity to work as part of a team, in a competitive environment, using their critical-thinking and problem solving skills and business acumen.

This year the Business Cup Challenge will focus on the latest blockchain technology and use of cryptocurrency.
