Metropolia’s students won the Finnish Project Management Championship 2014

13.11.2014

Metropolia’s Industrial Engineering students Henri Böhm, Henri Turtiainen and Niko Puhakka have won the Finnish Project Management Championship -competition. The competition measures the students' project management knowledge and practical problem-solving skills.

There were 47 teams from seven universities competing for the title of Project Management Champion and the right to represent Finland in the first International Project Management Championship in Lithuania. The best teams of each university met on the final, where they had to solve a real life case study and present it to the jury. The case, provided by Project Institute Finland was demanding and the time pressure was fierce. The jury consisted of international PM experts from Tieto, IPMA and Project Institute Finland. The winner was announced on the 11th of November, in the award ceremony during the PM Days in Dipoli.

After giving their presentation, team of Metropolia shared their thoughts: “In this experience we realized that the theory that we study at school can actually be applied in the real life case, so it definitely grew our confidence. It is difficult for students to find places where they can show in practice what they are capable of doing, but this was excellent opportunity. We are perfectionists and it was very challenging to compromise the quality of the presentation that we show to the judges under so intense time pressure. However, when we participate in any competition we are very determined and goal oriented, we don’t come here to lose.”

The second place went to Haaga-Helia UAS, and the third place was taken by team of Seinäjoki UAS.

The PM Championship is organized by Young Crew Finland and Project Management Association Finland. More information about the competition can be found on http://pmchampionships.com/
