This is the third time RMIT students have won the local edition of the Challenge, which was hosted by the Chartered Institute of Management Accounting (CIMA).
Four members of the team “RMIT Flames” defeated three teams from the Foreign Trade University and a team from the Hanoi University in the beginning of June to win the Vietnam round of the Global Business Challenge and a $1,000 scholarship, and will now go on to compete in the Global Finals to be held in Poland in August.
The RMIT Flames team members are Ngoc Minh Tam Lam and Dinh Hoang Long Pham, (both Bachelor of Business (Economics and Finance) students), and Thi Kim Trang Tran and Le Minh Hang Nguyen (Bachelor of Business (Marketing) students).
This year’s competition required the contestants to walk in the shoes of fictional oil and gas companies. Working as management consulting teams, they had to analyze and work out solutions to potential problems.
In the final round the team received challenging questions from the judges and managed to impress them with their confident presentation and professional Q&A session.
