Project Management Challenge
Our Award Winning "Project Management Challenge" is a unique contest aimed at university students, to give them some project planning experience. They will be given a specific topic on recent global issues and will be working in teams to produce a Project Management Plan.
Those selected in the top 10 will further go into the next round to present their projects and create a multimedia content to further explain their ideas. They will be presenting in front of a panel of distinguished judges from PMI and industry professionals.
Winners will take home a grand prize money and many other gifts. The event is usually combined with webinars, and other knowledge sharing or upskilling sessions from industry practitioners to give insights to the students.
As of 2021, we have ran this event now for 7 consecutive years and our last PMC attracted 32 teams from 12 different universities all around the world.

However, historically, project management frameworks have been developed for large scale projects, and while exemplary, it’s not always possible or financially viable to run small projects abiding to the same frameworks.
