Enterprising

Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

International Olympiad in Informatics

This year the International Olympiad in Informatics is in Almaty, Kazakhstan(25th July - 2nd August 2015) and we will be sending a full Irish team of fourstudents to the competition.

Therefore the top eight senior students from the finals will be invited to the AIPO-IOI training camp (22nd-24th June 2015) here on campus in DCU.

This will be an intensive 3 day camp in the strategies and techniques required to solve problems at the IOI. The best four students from this training camp will be select to represent Ireland at the IOI (fully funded).

We would like to thank Fidelity Investments and DCU for their continued generous sponsorship of this event.
