Posters dotted the Business School foyer on the day of the Decision Sciences Undergraduate Poster Competition. For the students, it was the culmination of several weeks of discussions to find solutions to a real-life business problem, based on theories learnt in the classroom over the past few years. It was also a chance to articulate to judges, and argue too, the rationale of their business proposals.
While judges were faculty members, members of the companies they were analysing also came by to watch the presentations and offer valuable practical feedback on the business plans presented.
Year Four Honours student Steffi Chang who participated said, “The project provided great insight into the industry as we were provided with the valuable opportunity of applying the theories we have learnt in class to solve a business problem. Furthermore, we were also provided with the platform to interact with representatives from P&G and XiaoMi and present our findings to them, which gave us a new perspective of how businesses operate in reality.”
