BizMaestros contest begins

October 09, 2022 00:00:00

Unilever Bangladesh is launching the 13th edition of BizMaestros, one of the most awaited business case competitions among the country's top graduates, says a press release.

To participate in the competition, final year students will have to register on the BizMaestros official website, the link to which can be found with instructions in Unilever Careers (BD) page on Facebook, (https://www.facebook.com/Unilever CareersBangladesh). The competition began on October 8 and will conclude with a grand gala event in November 2022.

The theme this year is 'Bangladesh Rising With U'. Centered around the immense potential of the demographic dividend of the country, the competition will provide the platform for youth to explore how their skills can drive Bangladesh's economic growth.

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 FMCG industry. By looking at the diverse scope of work across different functions, students can decide early-on the career path that is best suited to their passions and skills. In the final round, teams work on delivering an end-to-end business solution based on conducting real consumer research, feasibility analysis and series of mentorship rounds.

Speaking about how Unilever Bangladesh aims to exceed its own benchmarks, Sakshi Handa, Human Resource Director, Unilever Bangladesh, said "Every year, we are amazed by the quality of talent who participate in BizMaestros. 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."
