Georgetown University – School of Foreign Service in Qatar (SFS-Qatar) recently concluded an on-campus workshop, where mentors from the local business community trained SFS-Qatar students who were taking part in the ‘Enterprise Challenge Qatar 2013’, a competition sponsored by Qatar Shell and the Bedaya Centre for Entrepreneurship and Career Development, to promote strategic thinking and business skills in young people.
Mentors Tarek Magdy and Mufeed Ahmed, who volunteered through the Bedaya Center, presented a training module at the workshop that was developed by the competition sponsors, and prepared teams of two to four students to take an online business and ethics assessment and play an online business simulation game, for points.
SFS-Qatar had a total of 20 students sign up for the competition, which was open to both high school and university level students in Qatar, an increase over last year’s three participants.
The winners of the competition, AL Zubarah Boys School, won tablets and smartphones equipped with applications and business simulation software to encourage their entrepreneurial skills even further.
