Dubai: The Tata group, a global enterprise, headquartered in India, is bringing India’s largest and highest rated business quiz for campuses, Tata Crucible Campus Quiz, to Dubai on April 30, 2017, Sunday. A key knowledge initiative for the youth by the Tata group, the Tata Crucible Campus Quiz’s inaugural edition in Dubai aims to attract the sharpest minds from the region. Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani – Dubai Campus – will be host partners for the competition. The invitation to participate has been extended to universities not only from Dubai but also from Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. Vipul, Consul General of India in Dubai, will be the guest of honour for the quiz.

Over the years, the Tata Crucible Campus Quiz has seen a huge response from prominent Indian and international universities. The quiz made its debut in India in 2004 with the corporate edition, followed by a campus edition and both have since become highly successful annual events. Singapore was the launch pad for Tata Crucible internationally and has seen 10 editions so far. There have been 13 Tata Crucible Corporate and Campus editions in India since its inception.

Given its strategic importance to the group and the strong presence of the student community in the region, Dubai is a natural extension for Tata Crucible. Participants can look forward to a dynamic business quiz that will channelise their curiosity, speed up their thought process and encourage divergent thinking.

The Tata Crucible Campus Quiz will comprise multiple audio-visual questions from the world of business and economy, including business houses, personalities, brands and markets, among other exciting topics. The quiz will be conducted by quiz master Giri Balasubramaniam, popularly known as Pickbrain, who will engage the contestants with an array of interesting questions.

Tata Crucible is open to all university students above the age of 18. Students can register for the quiz by logging on to the website (www.tatacrucible.com/uae). The top eight teams of two will be chosen from a preliminary written round and a quick wild card round. The eight teams will then battle it out for the coveted Tata Crucible Dubai trophy. There is no entry fee for the competition.

The winning teams will together take home cash prizes of AED1 30,0002. Besides the cash prizes, there are exciting goodies such as e-readers and Tata Crucible merchandise for the finalists and attractive prizes for the audience.

Sunil Sinha, resident director, Tata Sons, Middle East and North Africa, said, “We are privileged to host the first edition of the Tata Crucible Campus Quiz in Dubai. It is a fantastic forum to engage with the young and bright minds in Dubai and in and around the region. The Tata Crucible Campus Quiz provides students a platform to test their quick thinking, team building skills and general knowledge in an intellectually stimulating setting. We are also grateful to the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani (BITS) – Dubai Campus – for being our host partners this year to facilitate this quiz competition”.
