Five Accounting students were honored at the Bahrain Polytechnic campus on the occasion of attaining third place in the IMA Competition held in Dubai.
The competition provides an opportunity for students to interpret, analyze and communicate a solution to a real-life management accounting problem by preparing and submitting a presentation to a panel of audit-experienced IMA members.
This required the five students to work within a team on a selected project. The project consisted of strict guidelines which were supervised by a Polytechnic Accounting tutor; Ms. Shaima Al Ansari.
Out of 22 teams from 18 countries in the Middle East and North Africa, the Polytechnic students reached the finals out of four teams and concluded their competition with a third place finish.
One of the team members, Hussain Ali, expressed his happiness on joining the competition and emphasized on the unique experience to compete with teams from different countries. Additionally, he encouraged the rest of the students to accept the opportunities available to them in the Polytechnic.
Kawthar Alwadeai, another team member close to graduating, had no hesitation to participate in the competition as it was an opportunity to enhance her skills.
Dr. Mohamed Al Aseeri, Acting CEO of Bahrain Polytechnic, stated: “This is a great achievement [for them]. We are proud to see our students reach to such an outstanding level.
“I must thank the academic staff for their great efforts to provide support to the students, which was constantly followed-up by our Board of Trustees, headed by Sheikh Hisham Bin Abdulaziz Al Khalifa, to achieve the goals of Bahrain’s 2030 Vision.”
The five students thanked the executive management of the Polytechnic for the opportunity to participate in the region-leveled competition and for their constant support.
