Before we wrap up the year, we would like to congratulate all the students who participated in this year’s 3rd edition of the Global M&A Challenge!
The GMA Challenge, formerly known as the Royal Challenge, is the world’s largest student M&A case competition, which in its latest edition has seen the participation of over 1,000 students from Universities across the world.
We are proud to sponsor the GMA’s mission which is to promote strategic thinking and financial acumen, and inspire students from diverse backgrounds to explore and excel in the intricate crossroads of M&A, sustainability and behavioural economics.
