Business management students impressed The Apprentice winner, Mark Wright, during a guest lecture at the University of East London.
The Australian-born entrepreneur only got through 60 per cent of his presentation before the “switched on” students began asking a non-stop stream of questions.
“I loved it, the students were so engaged,” Mark said. “They’re in their final year and many hope to start their own business, so the big question was ‘what next?’”
Mark won the hit BBC show in 2014, securing him £250,000 and support from Lord Alan Sugar to launch his successful marketing firm, Climb Online.
Student Arthur Nkwocha, 25, started his own record label business, Kingsman Group, in 2011.
