The following are some upcoming events hosted by and featuring IMA Europe:

Pan Regional Finals of the Student Case Competition in Athens

Students across Europe participated in the regional 2022 IMA Europe Student Case Competition to showcase their ability to think strategically and stretch their analytical skills to solve the business case, “Maximizing Customer Value at the Cage.” The three finalist teams from Europe will next compete in the Pan Regional Finals, to be held in Athens, Greece, in April and the winning team will go on to compete in the global finals competition in Dubai, UAE, to face other regional winners in June. We congratulate our finalist teams from the University of Economics in Katowice (Poland); KIMEP University (Kazakhstan); and Vistula University (Poland). 

Staff and volunteer leaders from IMA Europe will be on hand to participate in the Athens competition. Serving as jury members will be Alain Mulder, IMA senior director, Europe operations, and Bernardin Generalao, IMA director, regional partner relations; as well as volunteer leaders Brigitte de Graaff, CMA, CSCA, IMA Global Board member; and Odysseas Christodoulou, CEO of Globaltraining, one of our CMA approved course providers.
