Calling all students and graduates to enter the FT’s MBA Challenge!
An opportunity for you to use your business skills to make a difference.
This year, participating teams are being asked to help Stop the Traffik, a non-governmental organisation, decide how best to promote the organisation’s STOP app – designed to help people report any signs of human trafficking and forced labour they see.
In round one of the challenge, registered teams submit a short proposal of their recommendations. In round two, shortlisted teams are partnered with a mentor and asked to create a 12-page business plan based on their proposal.
At least one member of the team must be studying for an MBA at the point of registration. The rest can be university-level students or graduates of any discipline, but at least one must be living in Europe, a second in the Americas and a third in Asia or Africa.
The team must consist of members from at least two different universities/ schools.
Last year’s winners represented University of Alberta School of Business (Canada), the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore, HEC Paris and London Business School. The team created a business plan for the International Rescue Committee.
To register a team or if you are looking to join a team or seeking members, then sign up for our team matching service – email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline to register your team and your interest is Friday April 29.
The deadline to submit short proposals for round one is Friday June 3.
Thank you for your time and best wishes,
