The Global Student Challenge is so much more than just an international student competition! It offers you the chance to gain valuable knowledge and further develop the skills you learned during your curriculum course. By participating in the Challenge, you will experience the life of a Corporate Executive and run your own virtual company, this is as close as you can get to reality! Ultimately, what we aim to achieve with the Global Student Challenge is to get you noticed by top corporates in search of Supply Chain talent and get recruited for your dream job or internship!
The Challenge, now in its 6th edition, pits teams from top business schools and universities from across the globe against each other in a search for the world’s Top Talent in Supply Chain Management and -Finance. This year we have changed the participation criteria. Whereas in the past, the Challenge was open for any student, participation is now by invitation only for curriculum students. If you don’t have The Fresh Connection or The Cool Connection in your curriculum but still want to participate, talk to your teacher about the simulations and the opportunity to introduce a new learning tool to the class!
The two tracks of the Global Student Challenge, The Fresh Connection and The Cool Connection, come together during the Global Final week for an intense competition among the top supply chain students in the world! Unexpected turns of event will make the battle fierce as teams from both tracks compete for €20,000 in cash prizes and the coveted Global Champion title!
