In the 5th Inter-School Young Business Talent Hunt (YBTH) organized by Skyline University College (SUC) and The Young Vision (TYV) magazine, around 1,100 students from 290 teams and 43 schools across the UAE participated. The 3-day event ran from October 15 until October 17, 2018 at SUC campus.

This annual inter-school business talent competition started in 2014 to commemorate SUC’s 25th Anniversary, and to provide a platform to harness the knowledge and abilities of students and inculcate in them the value of hard work in academics and extra-curricular activities.

“In line with the rulers of the country’s goal to encourage and nurture budding entrepreneurs, Skyline University College made it its mission to deliver innovative, enterprising, and techno-creative education. Hence, SUC, in partnership with TYV, has continued this tradition of uncovering aspiring entrepreneurs and encouraging them to develop out of the box thinking through the 5th YBTH,” said SUC’s Dean Prof. Mohammad In’airat.

This year’s competition is divided into four categories:  Advertising Design, General Business, Mobile Application, and Travel and Tourism. Dubai Gem Private School won in the Advertising Design category. Westminster School – Dubai bagged the trophy for the General Business category. For the Mobile App category, Cambridge International School secured the top spot. Dubai National School won in the Travel and Tourism category. The winners of the competition received a trophy, cash, and scholarship grant of up to 50% from SUC.

Skyline University College and The Young Vision magazine are grateful for the external line of judges. The success of the competition would not be possible without the participation of the esteemed judges from various industries who shared their expertise to the young talents. SUC and TYV are also thankful for the enthusiastic participation of the students and for the schools that supported them.

“We assume every single student a winner because they are passionate about their ideas and we are already impressed with their seriousness. Students have spent months developing business concepts and we would love to see them fulfilling their dream to own and manage business plan,” said Kaushal Pathania, The Young Vision’s Director of Marketing & PR.

With the success of this year’s YBTH, SUC is looking forward to new ideas and talents in next year’s YBTH.
