We were joined last week by students from across Europe for our action-packed Summer School. After a welcome event on the Sunday evening the students spent the rest of the week working on projects for real companies, taking part in interactive teaching sessions, and meeting guests from the business world. On Friday each team gave a presentation to a panel of judges; all teams were exceptional, and team 4U were declared the winner.
It was a great week and we would like to say a special thank you to our guest mentors, Tom Costley (former Deputy Managing Director, Specialist Services, TNS UK); Ellen Gunning (Director of the Irish Academy of Public Relations); and Peter Casey (entrepreneur and former Dragon from Dragons’ Den).
We would also like to thank the companies involved in this year’s Summer School – Gigaset; Shore GmbH; Munich Sessions; Blankenburgs Gesundheit & Sport; and Ursula von Minckwitz. A thank you also goes to the judges – Mr Michael Grodd, Christian Kählig, Jackson Lynch, Philipp Mack, and Gudrun Miller. Thank you too to Nikbin Rohany and Ursula von Minckwitz who were unable to be judges, but still took the time to meet with their respective team of students.
A final thank you goes to the students themselves, for all their hard work and commitment through an intensive week – they were fantastic and we look forward to seeing them again soon.
