We are looking for four teams of five 2nd year students who are registered for a work placement to join the Universities Business Challenge, a simulation-based competition for undergraduates.

This is your opportunity to make your CV stand out and experience the real business world by making all the decisions that affect the company's performance.

The competition is a true learning experience, which allows you to develop your commercial awareness, decision-making and team working skills. By taking part in the challenge you will also increase your knowledge of areas such as marketing, finance and production.

To register as a team or individual, please send a paragraph about why you want to take part in the challenge to Iram Sial at [email protected] by Friday 18 October.
