The 2019 Northern Ireland Business Challenge for Schools
Ten Year 14 Business Studies students are participating in the NI Business Challenge for Schools. This challenge requires students to undertake the roles of consultants. As a team of consultants, they will be employed by the Board of Directors of Henderson Group and asked to prepare a presentation for delivery to the Directors which addresses several matters. Matters relate to current business and economic issues including Corporate social responsibility, ethical considerations, capital investment and employability. The competition will take place on the 6th February 2019 at Queen's Management School at Riddell Hall. The NI Business Challenge supports the NI Business Studies curriculum and facilitates the development of pupils' business skills and knowledge in an enjoyable and interactive forum. Representatives from BDO Northern Ireland, Henderson Group and Queen's Management School will make up the judging panel on the day with the winning school team receiving VIP tickets for a Belfast Giants game, £500 for their school and a bespoke trophy.
