Thursday, 01 March, 2018

Four students from the University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD) got selected to participate in Checkmate 2.0, a reality show featuring 16 young and aspiring university students competing in a series of business challenges.

Mustafa Ahmed, Lokesh Bhatia, Himani Kothari and Muskan Lalwani secured a seat in the program which is based on the well-known series ‘The Apprentice’ which aired in America and in the United Kingdom.

Produced by IndiaCast, the show is aimed at the younger audience who are currently at a very important phase of their lives, evolving from being students to responsible professionals. The show aims to find the smartest young talent and offering them a great launch pad to be able to start their career with one of the most reputed employers.

The 14-episode television show will be hosted by radio presenters from City 1016 Malavika and Parikshit. It will premiere in the UAE on 18 February 2018 at 9:00pm UAE. At the end of the program, the three finalists will get an opportunity to intern with leading corporates in the Middle East.

If you have missed any of the episodes, you can watch it on YouTube.
