Have you got what it takes to run your own virtual construction company? 

Take your strategic, marketing, financial and management skills to the limit with the Chartered Institute of Building’s (CIOB) Global Student Challenge. Acting as a board of directors, teams succeed by developing disciplined decision making, teamwork and leadership. These skills will stay with you and provide a platform for developing your career.

This is the chance to learn skills that will make you stand out from the crowd, as well as an opportunity to compete head to head in an all expenses paid trip to Edinburgh if you reach the finals. The winning team at the finals will receive a cash prize and each team member will also be personally mentored by senior industry figures, many of whom have been Presidents of the Chartered Institute of Building.

This competition is open to full time students.

Registrations for the 2019 game have now closed.
