A group of MSc students from the Warwick Manufacturing Group recently won a Postgraduate Project Management competition organised by the Association for Project Management.
The Apprentice-style challenge saw teams of five being given a £100 budget with which to buy items to sell at a car-boot sale or flea-market the following day. The challenge was to raise at least £50 profit to donate to Oxfam (to fund an African business-start up loan).
Kanmi Odutola, a member of Warwick’s winning team, said “I am grateful and elated to have participated.”
