Working on real-life projects for high profile organisations such as The Salvation Army, White Ribbon and Accor, UNSW student teams have won three of nine projects at Univative 2015.
Univative is an inter-university competition that aims to enhance student employability skills including consulting, team work, problem solving, presenting and report writing.
More than 150 students from six NSW universities took part in the competition, with the finals held on Friday 24 July.
Taye Morris, Manager, UNSW Careers and Employment, says the competition provides the opportunity for students to see what it’s like to engage with real organisations and solve actual business problems.
“We are extremely proud of all the students who participated in Univative 2015, and acknowledge the incredible amount of work that went into each team’s projects,” says Morris.
Students were placed in small consulting teams and worked on the brief from their project host over a four week period.
Six UNSW teams took part in the competition, presenting their innovative business solutions to representatives from Accor, The Co-op Bookshop, Clickview, Red Balloon, The Salvation Army Sydney Streetlevel Mission and White Ribbon.
