Business Enterprise Challenge:
The Enterprise Challenge Qatar is an annual national competition which increases young people’s knowledge, understanding and enthusiasm about business and enterprise. Through an online business game, students experience a realistic business scenario where they produce, develop and market a new product. The competition encourages students to learn how different components of business come together to determine success, and to develop a spirit of entrepreneurship. Key to the Enterprise Challenge is the support offered by volunteer mentors, whose real-life experience of business enables them to advise and coach students through the various stages of the competition. This program is sponsored by Shell
