Congratulations to the DIT team of final year Marketing Students who won bronze at the 22nd NIBS International Case Study Competition which took place in Finland this year.  Forty Business Schools entered the competition, with just sixteen teams going through to the final stages of the competition.  DIT has a very strong record in this competition and the team made an excellent presentation.

Congratulations also to the team coach and mentor, Roger Sherlock, Assistant Head, School of Marketing!  Roger was presented with the ‘Most Inspiring Coach of the Competition’ award, following a vote by fellow coaches and competitors. 

This is the longest established business case competition globally.  Each year a different university in a different country hosta the final round. This year’s host was Satakunta University of Applied Sciences in Rauma, Finland
