"The simulations give a real world sight of the various decision making aspects of running a business, while the pacing of the Rounds allow a gradual and tight understanding of the various facets of day to day operations of an organisation. The experience has truly provided my team and I, with an enriched learning curve, and an indispensable understanding of business!"

"Teamwork is one of the most important elements, during the Challenge, we had conflicts, we had dissent, we used to be at rock bottom, but in the end, we overcame all the difficulties and kept moving ahead. We learnt that supply chain management is not a mission of one person. Multiple departments all need to work together and actively communicate to build trust."
