As part of our MBA Program, every year a company sponsors a challenge that our Fellows will need to tackle. The Fellows will research the topic and the market and will then prepare a presentation for the top management of the company.

For this year’s edition, GEDI brought a very exciting challenge: to create a strategy proposal for GEDI’s repositioning efforts of its radio business.

The teams have submitted their work on the 26th April and will know which strategy was selected as best in a few weeks.
