40 lower sixth Notre Dame students are taking part in the Leeds University Business School’s brand new Business Challenge.
Eight teams are preparing a business plan for a new start-up business based anywhere in the world they choose. With the support of four student ambassadors from the university, who will deliver three workshops with our students over the coming weeks, each business plan will be developed for presentation to a board of potential investors at the competition final on March 31.
The plan must include:
- A brief description of the business
- The products or services that the business provides
- The company’s marketing strategy
- An analysis of the company’s financial performance
The final will be held at Leeds University Business School, and will include a lunch and campus tour in addition to presentations from all teams.
The Business Challenge was launched with our students on Wednesday February 2, by the University of Leeds’s Pro Dean for Student Education Cathy Myles, and business lecturer Stacey Mottershaw, pictured above.
We can’t wait to see what our students come up with!
