Winning Ways in Business
18 May 2017
Business students came first in a competition run by a local company to mark European Supply Chain Day.
The competition was run by CEVA Logistics which has its European base in Ashby-de-la-Zouch and employs more than 40,000 people.
Students were challenged to play a business simulation game in wich they were asked to calculate the most efficient way of distributing goods, either by air, sea, land or rail.
The winning team was the one which made the most profit.
Paul Mills, Head of the business faculty, said: "It was about decision making and profit. As part of their Year 12 business studies course, they have to look at distribution channels so it tied in well with that. The students did incredibly well."
The students involved were Ross Jennings, Phoebe Baker, Blaze Clarke and George Mansfield.
