Business Minds, a school-based student-led club, was started by two Year 12 students from Dubai International Academy who were passionate about the world of Business, Economics and Entrepreneurship. Hence, to further pursue their interests, they took the initiative to create a club where they could motivate other students to apply their significant subject knowledge into the real world. Through this club, we aim to expose students to real business world scenarios through a fun, interesting and challenging way. We aim to do this by helping dedicated students prepare and excel at various business competitions around the United Arab Emirates. Moreover, motivated from the interest shown by students, we aim to host our very own Business Event at Dubai International Academy.
The Business Event will subsequently consist of various competitions aimed to target the best in every student. By having a range of competitions, students are given the ability to specialise in one aspect of the business world that they excel at. This could be through the marketing of a product, the creation of a business plan or even through the designing of a prospective mobile application. We aim to see participants portraying their entrepreneurial skills when tackling such situations while presenting to a panel of judges who are experienced in the field of business. The theme of the event will be innovation; therefore, participating in the competition will be a great opportunity for students to enhance their creativity, negotiation, leadership, marketing and public speaking skills by interacting with many new colleagues within an international environment.
