Watch: Scottish Universities Business Challenge 2018

The first Scottish Universities Business Challenge saw over 40 students from ten universities come together to solve real-world challenges facing society and financial services.

The one-day event in April, which was hosted by the University of Edinburgh Business School and sponsored by Royal Bank of Scotland, was the first event of its kind for Scottish Financial Enterprise.

Students were exposed to real-world industry challenges covering topics such as climate change, future skills, access to credit, technology and the pensions sector.

Scottish Financial Enterprise Young Professionals assisted as mentors and industry experts offered advice to the teams ahead of pitching to a panel of judges.
