For example, a team of five Kingston students, including Sports Science, GIS and Environmental Studies students, beat over 60 universities to scoop first place in the 2007 Entrepreneurs' Open Challenge.
This nationwide competition brings together entrepreneurial-minded students from universities across Europe and the US. It is similar to The Apprentice TV show, with each team undertaking challenges designed to test a range of skills, including negotiation, sales, marketing and strategy.
The Kingston team was made up of Diana Lo (studying Sports Science with Business), Adanna Welch (GIS with Business), Roshni Shah (Environmental Studies with Business), Farah Henry (Business and Psychology) and Mitul Patel (Law).
"[The competition was] both physically and mentally challenging, but a fantastic opportunity to network and gain invaluable skills in both entrepreneurship team working," said team leader Diana Lo.
