The festive season will take full flight at Limerick Institute of Technology on Wednesday 30th November as the MarketLink Entrepreneur Programme hits the Clonmel campus. 

First and third year Bachelor of Business students along with first year Bachelor of Science in Creative Multimedia students will host the fun filled day to raise vital funds for local charities St. Vincent de Paul and Deise Animal Sanctuary.

The Christmas themed market will be open to the public, with plenty on offer from the ten different stalls present on the day. 

Marketing and Entrepreneurship lecturer Fiona Browne says: "The MarketLink Entrepreneur Programme facilitates the application to theory learned in the classroom setting. As part of continuous assessment, students research and plan a market stall business which they will then manage on a group basis for a day. The exercise sharpens business acumen as students are exposed to issues faced by start-up and small businesses. The assignment instills confidence and professionalism in students, while enhancing both hard and soft skills”. 

The market is open to the public from 10am – 2pm with all proceeds going to the worthy local charities.
