MSc Commercial Management students from the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering are taking part in their own internal Enginuity Competition as part of their module 'Commercial Management'.

The students were split into 20 teams, and competed over 5 rounds, or one and a quarter simulated years, between February and March 2024.

THE FINAL RESULT:  "'SiX GoLdZZ' are the Champions!"

In a dramatic final round, "SiX GoLdZZ" held off a strong challenge from their nearest rivals to emerge as the University of Manchester Enginuity 2024 Champions with an impressive finishing score of 1,726 pts. Ultimately their success owed much to them demonstrating one of the guiding principles in running a successful business, consistency, having led the competition for 3 of the 5 rounds, and having never been out of the top 5.

The Final Round saw every team post postive growth figures, almost unheard of in Enginuity History. "GOAT8" produced a stunning final round with 21% growth to surge 8 places up the table, and become this year's Runners Up, and only 7 points adrift of the Champions, and so close to living up to their team name. "Quantum Quokkas" held their position to finish 3rd, and just ahead of "Beauties no Beast" who finished 4th. At the other end of the table "Win-Win" posted the best results in the final round, a stunning 24% improvement that lifted them 5 places off the bottom of the table.

In the final analysis all of the teams finished with stronger, more sustainable companies than when they took over in period 5, a testament to the skill and application shown by the management teams in what was a roller coaster of a journey through 5 simulated quarters of management.
