Regent's College London students make UK IBM-UBC 2012 Semi-final

Regent's College London Team AB3 qualified for the UK semi-final of the Universities Business Challenge (UBC) last week.

The College's Business and Management (BaM) Faculty entered two undergraduate teams in the competition, which attracted 304 teams in 2011-2012 - a record 1,500 plus students from 73 university faculties. 

The BaM teams were a mixture of students in different levels of their studies from the European Business School and Regent's Business School London programmes.

Triumph for team AB3

Regent's AB3 led by Arian McKenna (team captain) with Anne Rickelt, Hanna O’Connor and Grace O’Connor triumphed in the last trading period to progress into the semi-final.  Their admirable achievement kept the tradition of Regents' teams' qualification into the semi-final for this prestigious national challenge.

Commiseration to the other Regent's team - AM3. The team competed diligently and led most of the trading periods and narrowly missed qualifying for their semi-final.  Regent's AM3 was led by Preben Rasmussen (Team Captain) with Darshan Patel, Christopher Hlava and Sebastian Almquist-Tangen.
