13th edition of business case competition BizMaestros launched
Unilever Bangladesh launched the 13th edition of BizMaestros, one of the most awaited business case competitions among the country's top graduates.
Over the years, the flagship initiative has provided a platform for the youth to experience the thrill of real business by creating solutions that can bring about real impact, Unilever said in a statement.
The winners of BizMaestros will represent Bangladesh on an international stage at the Unilever Future Leaders' League, and are also fast-tracked into Unilever's management trainee programme.
The first and second runner up teams receive the exclusive opportunity to pursue an internship with Unilever, the company said in the statement.
The theme this year is 'Bangladesh Rising With U'.
BizMaestros, a business competition for final year university students, offers real business case studies of brands of Unilever.
The first round takes place through online submission from students across Bangladesh.
The second round takes students through hands-on coaching from experts at Unilever and each team gets an exposure into what life looks like working in an evolving fast-moving consumer goods industry.
"Every year, we are amazed by the quality of talent who participate in BizMaestros," said Sakshi Handa, human resource director of Unilever Bangladesh.
"We have campus ambassadors in 25 universities who help us reach out to students with opportunities that will accelerate their careers. This year, we have removed the requirement for team members to be from the same university, so that the participants have the option to partner with people with diverse majors and skillsets."
BizMaestros this year will also have two bootcamps to train to-be graduates on the future of work skills for a promising career.
In 13 years, BizMaestros Champions have competed with around 25 nations in the Unilever Future Leader's League (UFFL) competition and made Bangladesh proud in the global stage by winning the championship twice and runners up thrice.
Last year, the BizMaestros champion team won at the global level and will be traveling to UK this year for their international work opportunity.
To participate in the competition, final year students will have to register through the BizMaestros official website, the link to which can be found with instructions in Unilever Careers (BD) page in Facebook. The competition launched today will conclude with a grand gala event in November this year.
