The city of Doha, from April 10-12, will be hosting the international final of the 2016 edition of the Global Management Challenge.
The date for another international final of the Global Management Challenge, this time the 2016 edition, is fast approaching. Doha, the capital of Qatar, will be hosting this event, where around 23 national winning teams will compete for the title of World Champion.
The countries participating include: Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Slovakia, Spain, Estonia, France, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Kuwait, Macau, Morocco, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Kenya, the Czech Republic, the People’s Republic of China and Russia, will be divided into four groups on April 10. On the first day of the competition, on April 11, each team will make five management decisions related to the running of their company. The results are analysed and then the two teams with the best results are selected from each group. Only those eight selected teams move on to the next stage and compete for victory in the grand finale on April 12, 2017. On the big day, each surviving team will take a further five management decisions to prove who is the best of the best. The winner is announced at a gala dinner on the very same day.
At the last ten international finals first place was taken five times by Russia (2015, 2014, 2013, 2011 and 2008), twice by Ukraine (2012 and 2009), once by Slovakia (2010), once by Macau (2007) and once by the Czech Republic (2006). We are very excited to see who will be taking the crown in the 2016 edition.
The Global Management Challenge came to Qatar in 2013 and the event has been organised by the Adnar Group with partnership of QFBA.
Randa Haidar, MD at ADNAR Group (Region Organiser) says that: “this year, we are pleased to be collaborating once again with QFBA to mark a new milestone in this arena, as we prepare to welcome the International Final of the globally-acclaimed competition to Doha for the first time. As an establishment that with an extensive understanding of the various aspects of multinational and local business requirements and needs, ADNAR Group will do its absolute best to turn this extraordinary event into an extraordinary success.”
Abdul Aziz Al Horr, CEO at QFBA (Qatar Co-Organizer) says that “it is QFBA’s absolute honor to bring the International Final of the world-renowned ‘Global Management Challenge’, in partnership with ADNAR Group, to Qatar and the Arab World for the first time ever in the competition’s 36 – year history. QFBA is determined to deliver a world-class event that matches, if not exceeds, previous GMC International Finals that were held in some of the world’s biggest capital cities, and we can’t wait to welcome the winning national teams to Doha.”
For those visiting Doha for the first time there is much to see. It is the capital Qatar, an Arab country occupying the small Qatar Peninsula on the northeast coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It borders Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf. Its capital, Doha, lies on the eastern side on the shores of the Persian Gulf, and is the economic, cultural and financial centre of Qatar. It is also the most populous city with about one million inhabitants.
The Museum of Islamic Art constitutes one of the must-sees in Doha. But just meandering through the streets, enjoying the architecture, visiting the market and looking out over the waterfront to the bay and the skyscrapers is also highly recommended.
Don’t forget that in 2022 Doha will host the Football World Cup. And this year it will receive the international final of the Global Management Challenge with teams and delegations arriving from all four corners of the world.
