IE Application - MIM
This presentation was created exclusively for my Master in Management application to the Instituto de Empresa, Madrid ES.
K. If all of the world´s cultural heritage (sports, music, fashion, architecture, literature, painting, etc..) was contained in a time capsule, what would you include to demonstrate the legacy of your country?
"One Zambia One Nation"
Zambia is a landlocked country located in the southern region of Africa, with a growing population of approx. 13.2 million people spread across 752,614 sq kilometers of spectacular landscapes.
So what would I include to demonstrate the legacy of my country....
Zambia's rich cultural mosaic - 73 different languages are spoken across the nation - manifests itself in the warm hospitality of its people. Add to that its vast natural beauty, no forgetting the Victoria Falls - one of the world's greatest natural wonders, and the country can be a traveler's paradise. Let's do this........
Let's take a plunge...
An icon of the African continents unparallelled natural beauty, spanning nearly 2 kilometers and plunging over 100 meters sending a permanent mist towards the heavens is the worlds largest waterfall and one of the 7 natural wonders of the world.
The Tonga tribe of Zambia named it MOSI-OA-TUNYA, meaning the 'smoke that thunders', David Livingstone named it the Victoria Falls.
Kitenge or Chitenge a traditional garment unique to Africa. Chitenge are 100% cotton, which is printed on using a traditional batik technique; these patterns printed on the chitenges usually carry meaning and are recognizable to the areas they originate from.
Chitenge are used for millions of things, from baby straps to furniture. You can never walk past a Zambian household without noticing a Chitenge!
Whether you’re sitting on the beach relaxing or having a great night out, you can never go wrong with a Mosi Lager, Africa’s award-wining lager brewed with passion and a great story!
Named after the mighty Mosi oa Tunya (Victoria Falls) Mosi Lager is the iconic Zambian beer. Brewed for over 30 years it's Zambia's number one thirst quencher.
Mosi is a clean, crisp and refreshing lager with a characteristic pleasant bitterness, and a delicate hop aroma.
Zambia prides itself on its cultural diversity. There are over 20 colorful ceremonies celebrated throughout the country, although many are small events in remote areas. Each festival has it’s own cultural significance, from marking an important stage in the local harvest through to initiation into adulthood, although similar features – drumming, music, dancing, and traditional dress – are common themes throughout.
Zambian Cuisine - Nshima
Many thanks for taking your time to watch this presentation - Hope I managed to leave you with a bit of that Zambian vibe!
Here's an upbeat song done by various artists in Zambia in a range of local dialects - Enjoy!
A short destination video by the Zambia Tourism Board
Football definitely is a huge thing in Zambia and it's safe to say it is Zambia's leading sport.
The Zambian national football team is often refereed to as the Chipolopolo (the Copper Bullets) and it is an adequate nickname for a country that’s main export is copper

Mosi Lager - Zambia's World Class Beer
The Victoria Falls [Mosi-ao-Tunya]
Nshima is the staple food of Zambia. It is basically a very thick porridge made from finely ground corn meal, called mealie meal. It is served in lumps and eaten with the hands.
To eat it, you break off a bit just smaller than a golf ball and kneed it in the palm of your hand until it is easy to work with and becomes a ball. You make an indentation in the ball with your thumb to make a sort of spoon, then scoop up whatever relish is served along with it (relish can be anything from a tomato and onion based sauce to vegetables to meats). You then eat the nshima and relish together.
Mud-Huts in Zambian Villages
Zambia is the second largest emerald mining country in the world.
Majority of the gems produced in Zambia are found in the Kamakanga and Kagem mines. Both are found in the northeastern region of the country.
They are usually built from
materials readily available like
clay, tree branches, and
Apart from all the amusing buildings in Zambia with influences from across the globe, nothing yet beats the art behind a mud-hut in Zambia.
These techniques have now been
implemented by various lodges , hotels and homes too!
Gemstone mining in Zambia is big, but Copper mining is even bigger.
Zambia is one of the worlds leading producers of Copper.
Copper mining plays a massive role in Zambia's economy and it's also the largest contributor to Zambia's GDP.
