GMC International Final

ITSector/Abaa team represents Portugal in Russia

News GMC Final_V1_Inside News_1400x700px-jpgGlobal Management Challenge has been a consolidated, multicultural, and inclusive project for more than 40 years. Portugal has already won 8 international editions, and this year, the ITSector/Abaa team - winner of the national 41st Edition - will represent Portugal in the International Final.

Russia hosts for the fourth time an international final of the GMC. The city of Niznhy Novgorod is hosting this event, which takes place between the 27th and 29th of September and gathers the best teams from the 25 countries competing.

As a competition supported by a software/strategy and management simulator, it ends up simulating something that is a daily reality for companies - the decision process with a view to sustainability, which in itself implies profitability, financial health, and business continuity.

"These are the challenges that the GMC competition addresses and that, in a simulated environment, introduces stress and adrenaline to the competitors to be winners, just like in real life in companies." states Jorge Bravo, ITSector’s Board Member.



The Portuguese team will be competing with 25 other teams from countries like Spain, Italy, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Estonia, Poland, Azerbaijan, Angola, Senegal, Macau, India, China, Australia, Brazil, Ecuador, Panama, and Mexico. 

It will be an untapped opportunity for our ITSector/Abaa team to interact with new cultures, mentalities, and strategies, increasing the learning potential of an international landscape experience.

"All these elements will provide our team with a strengthening of their self-esteem and personal confidence. It will certainly contribute to the development of their curiosity, their cognitive and knowledge development, and finally their will to succeed.", says Jorge Bravo.

We truly believe that this is just the beginning of a prosperous, bright, and outstanding future career, with new horizons, a new way of thinking ahead, without barriers or prejudices, fostering their convictions and determinations. 

Regardless of the results of this International Final, the ITSector/Abaa team already has our unconditional support and admiration. Let's go!
