The Global Management Challenge is the largest Strategy and Management Competition in the world. It’s the largest international event based on business simulations, with more than 500 000 university students and company managers participating in this event throughout the world.

The GMC is present in quite a number of countries from Africa to Europe, Asia and even South America. GMC Kenya is organised and run by Greener Pastures, a human resources consultancy firm, and for the 2016 edition, students and professionals have been invited to apply for the competition in order to get a chance to hone their skills in business management and growth.

The Global Management Challenge includes three national phases: a first round, a second round and a national final, and one international phase where the winning team of the national phase represents Kenya in the international final of the Global Management Challenge.


“We are excited to see the competition take root in Kenya amongst young students and professionals who are eager to expand their horizons and apply what they have learned in class or during on-the-job training,” said Ravi Shah, director at Greener Pastures.

“We saw the registration numbers double in the second edition of the competition, with the 41 teams who participated representing universities and workplaces from all across the country. Kenya is renowned for the accomplishments of our sports men and women; the team that represented Kenya in the GMC international finals held in Macau earlier this year showed the world that we are also ready to compete with the global best in the business arena,” Ravi concluded.

Registration is now open for anyone in their first year of tertiary study and upwards, as well as for people studying professional courses. Interested parties can apply through the GMC Kenya website with the winning team said to represent Kenya at the international finals in Doha, Qatar, April 2017.
