Manchester Academy Rises to 'The Blues Challenge'

Published on 17 April 2013

Year 8 students were invited to take part in a brand new business challenge at the Etihad Stadium

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.

“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!
