On Monday 5th February, a group of Year 13 Business Studies students - Katie, Katie, Faye, Alana and Erin – successfully competed in, and won, the Northern Ireland School’s Business Challenge at Queen’s Management School.
The competition sets students a complex business case study and challenges them to present their recommendations back to an expert judging panel comprising of Directors from Henderson Group, BDO NI and members of the QUB teaching staff.
Speaking of the team’s success, Glenlola Collegiate’s Business Studies teacher Mr Haylett said, “This is a fantastic achievement for these girls who have given up a significant amount of time and worked tirelessly on this presentation. Engaging in the competition honed their research, collaboration, and problem-solving skills. The event provided a unique platform for them to showcase their talents and abilities to industry professionals. We take immense pride in their accomplishment and eagerly anticipate their future success.”
The team now await their prize of VIP passes to a Belfast Giants game and a follow up visit to BDO NI offices in Belfast. Thank you to Queen’s University for hosting the event and to BDO NI and Henderson Group for their sponsorship of the competition.
