A team of UNSW students have won bronze for Australia at the 2011 Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) Global Business Challenge Final.

The team qualified for the challenge after winning the National F​inal which was held at Monash University a month earlier.

The CIMA Global Business Challenge gives students the opportunity to test their business management skills, expand their competitive talents and gain practical experience as a chartered management accountant.

Nelson Boyd, a Bachelor of Commerce/Law student said, "The CIMA Global Business Challenge tested my knowledge of business and allowed me to collaborate with team mates to effectively reach team objectives. The finals were an opportunity to not only test myself but also meet and network with fellow competitors from around Australia."

The challenge brought together 17 universities from around the world and a panel of esteemed judges from organisations across the globe, including Barclays, Shell, L'Occitane en Provence and Tangs Department Store.

The UNSW team 'Eva Consulting', which consists of Paulette Lo, Nelson Boyd, Matthew Zaidan and Jared Goh came third in the Final of the Global Business Challenge which was held on 23 and 24 July in Chengdu, China.
