The team that will represent Angola is made up of Joel Fernandes Manuel (team leader), Ana Brinco Cafele and Dumilda Neto José, who will be accompanied by Fernando Assunção and Engo João Pereira.
In a statement sent to VerAngola, the institution says that the GMC 2021 did not take place internationally, given the covid-19 pandemic, and it will only be held this year again.
The competition starts on the 2nd of October and ends on the 5th. The competitors, divided into teams, compete with each other, managing virtual companies as if they were real companies, through the use of a computer system (management simulator), which simulates the the performance/decision of each team in a competitive business environment, taking into account the competition and the economic context of a given market.
"They interact making decisions as if they were responsible for the main management areas of the company (Finance, Human Resources, Production, Marketing, Commercial/Sales), which allows them to gain a broader view of the problem of managing a company, as well as the impact and importance that its decisions bring to the organization", explains the statement.
The 2021 Competition had 33 teams registered with 156 participants from five national universities: ISPTEC, INTIC, Methodist University of Angola and UTANGA.
The country has already participated 16 times in the international competition, and in 40 years the Global Management Challenge has already involved more than 650,000 staff from companies and university students from all over the world.
