Run by the City in the Community Team at MCFC, ‘The Blues Challenge’ set the students the task of developing and costing a brand new MCFC product to be sold in the club shop.
Working with professionals from Pinsent Masons, a long term business partner of Manchester Academy, and Lloyds Banking Group, students learnt a lot about how to conduct market research, work out the costs of the new products and present their work.
Manchester Academy students thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were highly praised by their new business colleagues for being professional and motivated.
Here are just some of the comments made by staff from Pinsent Masons and Lloyds Banking Group:
“Manchester Academy students made excellent contributions to the event.”
“They engaged very well on the project”
“The students were a credit to Manchester Academy.”
Thank you to the CITC team at MCFC who made this event such a success. Their work with Manchester Academy is invaluable and we look forward to our next challenge!
