29 Oct, 2021

A team of postgraduate students from across three different Masters programmes - Caoimhe Hayden and Nil Yurdakul (MSc Marketing), Leith Anticevich (MSc Business & Entrepreneurship) and Bastian Langemann (MSc. Strategic Management) - competed at the University of Muenster Case Competition.

They competed over two rounds against 15 other universities from the United States, Brazil, Canada, Thailand, Singapore, Lebanon and Europe. 

Dr Colin Hughes, Head of the Graduate Business School, explains, "our 2021 UMCC team is made up of a South African, German, Turkish and Irish student from a variety of different academic backgrounds, reflecting the diverse nature of our postgraduate population.  Their experience of working together in a challenging teamwork environment and engaging with students from universities worldwide allows them to develop the cultural intelligence, presentation skills and teamwork skills essential in modern business." 

The team were selected and coached by Dr Eoghan O'Grady.  According to Eoghan – "the experience gained, and lessons learnt from these competitions is brought back to the wider class cohort by the team members. Our continued involvement in these and other case competitions, including nationally at the ESB Energy Challenge (ESBCC) and on the international stage at AUBCC (Australia), LAZICC (Canada) and ROCA (The Netherlands)  also this semester are a critical prong of our signature pedagogy, i.e. case study teaching and learning.  It is fantastic that Year Three, Year Four and Postgraduate students have the opportunity to challenge themselves in this way each semester."
