Students have been invited to participate in a global internship competition, where the grand prize will be a prestigious three to six-month paid internship at British American Tobacco (BAT), and a trip to the global firm’s London headquarters, where they will have the opportunity to network with senior BAT professionals and gives them the opportunity for a massive career kick-start!

The competiton dubbed “Battle of the Minds” involves formation of a team, which then research a market, develops a product idea, then prepares an original business plan.

BAT will be looking for participants who not only possess leadership qualities and have a strong desire to be top performers, but also can build strong teams that work well with people who have different abilities and perspectives.

Participants will be asked to accurately assess markets to discover what they are missing, and thus present a plan on how BAT can remain competitive in saturated markets and revolutionize customers’ experiences.

Interested undergraduate students are requested to register at on or before Thursday, March 15.

Interested participants may also contact Career Services (0730116796) or the Internship Office (0730116780) between 8am and 5pm from Monday through to Friday, for any further clarification.
