Success at IBM Universities Business Challenge semi-final!

The Universities Business Challenge Worldwide is the world’s longest established simulation-based competition designed to develop employability and enterprise skills. Supported by the UK and South Africa’s leading universities and graduate employers, over 30,000 students have benefitted from taking part in the UBC Worldwide Challenge since 1998.

UPDATE*** 

  • Maxwell’s Angels won the semi-final so onto the final in London on the 22nd!
  • Team Kepler came third and won best presentation on the day
  • Here’s what Tommaso said:

    Even though we didn’t qualify I’m still happy with the semi-final as I wasn’t even expecting to get there. As a theoretical physics student I had no background in business or any related subject (not even in high school) and I feel I have learnt a lot from it.

I am very proud to be supporting all three School of Physics & Astronomy teams who have made it to the IBM UBC semi-final in Edinburgh today.  The teams are Maxwell’s Angels led by Sania Lewis, Kepler led by Adam Thomas-Mitchell and Maxwell’s Demons led by Wesley Shao.  SOPA teams have done well in this competition so I am wishing them lots of luck.
