Frequently Asked Questions
What is the background of CYBL judges?
To ensure the highest quality of education all of our judges and instructors are very experienced in business. We select our judges from a network of professionals to give our students exposure to people with a wide variety of real-world experience.
Most of our judges are graduates from top universities and have spent years working in a wide variety of business-related fields. Previous CYBL judges have been entrepreneurs, consultants, PHDs in economics, accountants, heads of embassy commerce departments, and CEOs and CTOs from startups in education, technology, and media.
Is CYBL just for students who want to study abroad?
CYBL can benefit all students. For those who want to study abroad, CYBL can improve one’s academic background, strengthen a résumé or college application, and familiarize students with topics taught at American business schools.
For those who want to study in China, CYBL can help students get exposure to an international business environment, meet new people, improve their English abilities, and cultivate an interest in business.
How should students prepare for CYBL competitions?
You should attend a free training at your school. We offer trainings to any CYBL member school that requests one. If your school has not scheduled a training, you can use our website to schedule one.
If my English is not good, will it affect my tournament score?
CYBL tests a student's ability to do business analysis, work well as a team, and exhibit logical thinking. It is not a test of how well a student speaks English and students will not lose points for making English mistakes. Rather, students are scored based on the quality and depth of their recommendations.
While CYBL is conducted in English, we give students bilingual directions and have bilingual staff at every tournament. We understand students are always interested in improving their language skills and we recommend reading a news article and watching a short business or science-related news video every day.
