THE GLOBAL BUSINESS CHALLENGE IS A POSTGRADUATE STUDENT COMPETITION TO DESIGN SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS TO GLOBAL PROBLEMS. The Global Business Challenge (GBC) is being conducted as a partnership between QUT, The University of Queensland and Griffith University and with the support of government and industry. The objective of the GBC is to leverage the exceptional intellectual talent from the worlds’ top business schools and universities to solve a major global problem. The competition is designed to challenge students to formulate business solutions for globally relevant and contemporary ‘wicked’ problems with global significance. Importantly, the GBC is designed to foster cross-border and cross-discipline collaborations to create solutions that capture emerging transformative business opportunities for industries, regions and countries. Solutions will consist of a combination of new and emerging technologies, as well as novel business models to support commercialisation and global adoption of these solutions. Additional industry prizes will be announced that are specifically targeted to support finalist teams, or their collaborators (if any) in their commercialisation effort.
