The challenge will take place over the next few months, where students will compete in four teams from different universities.

Towards the end of the programme, each team will write a research report determining the fair value of Zain Bahrain’s shares which will be presented to a panel of judges.

The winning team will compete at the Europe, the Middle East and Africa regional competition in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and in Atlanta, Georgia, US.
