The CIOB’s Global Student Challenge has reached the stage where the six teams who have qualified for the final have been identified. These teams are invited by the CIOB to attend the final starting 9th July at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Hong Kong. The final coincides with the CIOB’s Members Forum which will provide the Finalists with a varied, interesting and exciting experience where they will meet and engage with many senior Fellows of the CIOB and industrialists. This is great platform on which to plan a career.

The Global Student Challenge offers students a chance to learn skills to stand out from the crowd as well as an opportunity to compete head to head in Hong Kong to win mentoring from industry leaders and CIOB Past Presidents. The challenge is open to students based anywhere in the world on a built environment Bachelor’s degree level course.
