A team of students from the University of Exeter has won the UK final of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants Global Business Challenge 2012.

The team, the Indivisibles, will now represent the UK against teams from 21 other countries in the global final in Colombo, Sri Lanka, on July 23 and 24.

The GBC is a business management competition designed to bring out the best in the next generation of business leaders. The UK competition has been organised with Barclays and sponsored by Tesco and Milkround.

Over 300 students registered to take part in the UK leg of the competition, with the Indivisibles winning against another team from Exeter as well as teams from Regent's College (European Business School) and Middlesex University.

The team was mentored by Chie Min Teng, a lecturer at the University of Exeter Business School, who said: "They are a group of wise, young minds who are committed to excelling as business leaders. The fact that the university managed to get two teams to the final is a testament to the quality and dedication of our students. We will do our very best to hopefully capture the world crown."

David Rowsby, director of Europe at CIMA, added: "The standard of this year's competition was higher than ever, indeed in the final reckoning it came down to just one point."
