Bangladesh youths excel in BizMaestros
Winners of a competition BizMaestros are seen at the grand finale held in 2021.

Bangladeshi youths have kept a stronghold at international business competition of BizMaestros unfolding their innovations in management and field level experience with consumers.

“The youths have proven their excellence on the global stage as the country’s team secured two championships and three runners up trophies so far at Unilever future leaders’ league,” Sakshi Handa, Director of Human Resource at Unilever Bangladesh, said during a talk with journalists at its head office in Dhaka on Monday.

The British multinational company welcomed the journalists at its new corporate headquarters in Dhaka.

Sakshi Handa mentioned that Bangladeshi youths had the power to clinch the trophy at international competition where innovators from 45 countries across the globe were participating.

Final-year students from 25 graduate schools in the country took part in the competition so far in the last 12 years, she said.

Unilever Bangladesh Corporate Affairs Director Shamima Akhter termed the “BizMaestros” as different from other case-based competition.

“There is no boundary for the innovators. Students from anywhere in the country can participate in the competition forming a team with friends from the same campus or other institutes,” Akhter told Daily Sun, replying to a question on diversification of the competition.

This year, BizMaestros focused on inspiring stories of the country with tagline of #Bangladesh RisingwithU.

In the last 12 years, students from different parts of the country took part in the competition and upheld the image of Bangladesh in the global arena.

The business competition provides an avenue to the innovators to increase engagement and increase the attractiveness of the BizMaestro’s brand among the students, differentiate it from its competitors and become employer of choice and dream employer, the company said.

BizMaestros started back in 2010 as a one-day business competition to challenge students to bring the best ideas from their perspective to help the business from a consumer lens.

The champion team of BizMaestros is provided with the opportunity to go to Future Leaders League – the global competition where the champion teams of Unilever counterparts across the world come together in London for the ultimate face-off.
