PepsiCo, the Global Food and Beverage Company is introducing the launch of the second edition of
“ Change The Game Challenge”
Targeting students, fresh graduates & graduates with up to 3 years of working experience nationals of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Lebanon & United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, Korea, India, Philippines & Thailand.
Through the Change the Game Challenge, participants – in teams of two – are asked to solve this year’s business challenge of starting their own health and nutrition business in the food and beverage, in line with PepsiCo’s product philosophy and that can be implemented by the company, by 2020.
Regional winners from Asia Pacific, MENA (Middle East and North Africa) and India are offered a job with PepsiCo in their respective regions, and are invited to travel on an all-expenses paid trip to Dubai to compete in the final round to win a one-year-international job offer or a 2-months paid international internship within Asia, Middle East & North Africa, and a trip to New York.
First, runners-up are offered a job or a 2-months paid internship with PepsiCo in their home country or given the opportunity to shadow PepsiCo business leaders for a week, while second runners-up will be given the opportunity to shadow PepsiCo business leaders for a day in their respective home country.
The final winning team will pitch their ideas to Indra Nooyi, PepsiCo CEO and one of the world’s most powerful women in business – something that the 2016 winners from Egypt, Amr Ezzat and Omar Nada, were extremely proud to do. “We flew to New York, went to the PepsiCo Headquarters, and couldn’t believe that we would present our idea to Indra Nooyi,” said Amr. “When we met with Ms Nooyi, she was attentive, very interested in our idea, and she made us feel very confident. It was an amazing experience, something that we really recommend everyone be a part of. Working with PepsiCo for the last one year has been phenomenal in giving us a real sense of direction in our careers.”
