This was a really unique training programme for us. We got a deeper understanding of the business as a whole and how decisions taken in one department affect work in other divisions of the company.

My team members and I were taking decisions as senior level managers in marketing, operations, human resources and other areas of the business that we managed during the competition. As a result I am now able to discuss various matters with people within my company more effectively. The UAE Global Management Challenge enabled us to have this type of inter-departmental relationship.

The Competition will provide students with the opportunity to make real-life business decisions that they would not ordinarily be exposed to at this stage in their career. As the decisions are multi-disciplinary, the competition will enable the students to apply content and skills they have learned in their various courses, essentially converting theory into practice in a global context.

This is the first time that DP World is participating in something of this nature. We decided to take on the challenge because it allows us to showcase our talent. When I first saw the proposal around the initiative I was encouraged because it allowed us to give a platform to our employees that was practical. I was also keen to see some of our young talent working together and i am proud of what they have accomplished so far. Its very important for DP World to see our employees grow and this competetion does just that

It’s been a lot of fun. It allowed us to see how far we could push the boundaries of our decisions-of course dependent on the market conditions that we were handed every week. It also allowed us to make mistakes confirming to us that there are consequences for every decision made in a company. We also realized that the decision-making process is not supervised we are trusted to run this virtual company on our own, which we were quite proud of doing.
