The Global James McGuire Business Plan Competition aims to encourage and showcase the entrepreneurial spirit of students attending institutions within the Laureate International Universities network. All students are welcome to participate. The competition has two categories: one for undergraduate students and one for working adult, graduate, or undergraduate students who have recently completed their program.
An evaluation committee comprising Walden program directors and faculty members selects its top candidate in each of the two categories. Walden recipients then compete with students from other Laureate network schools.
