Wisetek Teams up with Students from Munster Technological University
Wisetek is delighted to feature in Munster Technological University’s MSc in International Business program, as part of a case study evaluating several components of Wisetek’s business strategy, namely the areas of supply chain strategy, sustainability and risk and resilience.
Students were asked to individually produce a consultancy report and accompanying presentation to be made online to lecturers. Reports featured an in-depth exploration of Wisetek’s response to the impact of Covid-19, as well as our work in the area of sustainability, and a critical analysis of our supply chain strategy for expansion into international markets and the challenges facing us in this area.
As part of the case study, students conducted their own in-depth research, as well as receiving a briefing about the company from our Program Manager, Chris O’Neill, who said: “Wisetek was delighted to work closely with students from the MSc in International Business and we were happy to provide them with information on our company and how it operates. The work they carried out for the project displayed an impressive level of knowledge and insight, which speaks to the quality of the courses offered at Munster Technological University.”
Wisetek CEO, Sean Sheehan, praised the students on their work: “I wish to applaud the students of the International Business Masters program for their commendable efforts in evaluating Wisetek. The individual consultancy reports and accompanying presentations produced show the extensive level of research undertaken and the students’ considerable knowledge of business practices.”
Munster Technological University lecturer, Sean Donovan said: “As the module lecturer at MTU, I am very grateful to Chris O Neill and Wisetek for their support and engagement on this project. This case study provided our students with a unique and real-time insight into a Cork-based company that is operating on the global stage and in a sector that is continually evolving and growing.”
