Valentine Nti, Project Director, said:  “We launched this competition to provide High Schools in South Africa with a platform to benchmark how well they are preparing our next generation of finance and business leaders for the rigors of higher studies and professional life. We are only too excited about the diversity of responses from some top private and public schools across the country: schools following different curricula with yet very similar expected outcomes around the 4 key modules tested in the competition -Mathematics, Accounting, Economics and Business Studies. The senior version of the competition for Universities around the world has also recorded some very stunning entries!”
