bizMaestros is Unilever’s flagship business competition that has been rendering its participants with the thrill of an actual business. This platform gives final year undergraduate students an unparalleled opportunity to work on business challenges and build their acumen & skills, thus preparing them for the corporate world. There will be three exciting rounds that will be hosted virtually to ensure participants’ safety. The bizMaestros online platform will provide the participants enough leeway so that they can participate in the competition without being exposed to the COVID-19 virus.
With the ongoing global pandemic, many of the ongoing projects from diverse sectors came to a halt. But Unilever decided to arrange its showcase business competition, given the COVID situation currently being handled with proper caution. With educational institutions and workplaces running their activities through online mediums, the competition stakeholders also decided to hold the long drawn out program over online capabilities. Thus, the bizMaestros website came into existence.
Unilever conducted all the rounds of bizMaestros 2020 online. From team registration, case delivery, score distribution, to checking deadlines, rules & regulations, submission of the solution, video upload, the result showcasing, cases & solutions from previous years, etc. Everything was managed, controlled, and supervised through the bizMaestros website. Thus, the participants maintained their safety while the competition ran with all its glory.
bizMaestros is one of the most prestigious competitions in the country, opening up overwhelming career opportunities for the undergraduate business school community. Many await this opportunity to shine in the corporate world. Not being able to participate this year would be a huge blow for so many promising prospects. Thus, it was the right decision for Unilever to organize the program and conduct all of it through digital means. We hope there are some truly unique ideas and designs this year that will contribute to the future of our country.
