Economic experts said that for the next 5 years, United Arab Emirates will be opening for almost 200,000 job opportunities returning to its “glory days” because of Dubai’s successful bin to host the Expo 2020.
With this expectation, a management stimulation team has been launched in the country to guide and prepare young professionals and students towards the thousands of jobs that will be created.
The UAE Global Management Challenge will encourage and stimulate entrants to gain practical experience through an innovative competition. The team will be given a complete control of a virtual company with the objective of obtaining the highest investment performance for its shareholders.
“The UAE has a wealth of talent and through the UAE Global Management Challenge young managers and university students can hone their skills and find out what they want to do over the next few years,” says head of the consulting and advisory services firm that brought the Global Management Challenge to the UAE.
The Expo, which will run for six months, will bring in a variety of jobs including those in finance, real estate, retail hospitality and other services. In an effort to encourage students and professionals to gain solid practical experience and become an attractive employee, the competition challenges young entrepreneurs to take over the reins of a virtual company.
Those who enter the competition will have the chance to experience the private sector, while gaining insight and expertise into strategy and management, so they can better make a career choice.
