On the evening of May 16th, 19 teams of 4-5 students participated in round one of the first International Market Research competition. Students had to choose an APEC country and by looking at various aspects of the country, including, but not limited to, infrastructure, economy, and industry, and then make recommendations during a ten-minute presentation for foreign investment in that country.
Round two will be held next week followed by the finals the week after next. Students who advance and win this competition will an international study trip during the summer. The second place winners will all receive digital cameras.
Win or lose, all the students are winners because they had the chance to work on their “soft skills” something you hear a lot at SolBridge. These soft skills are important for preparing students for the job market after they graduate.
Congratulations go out to all the students who participated.
