A team of MBA students from Santa Clara University won first place in the IFAMA Student Case Competition Wednesday at the World Forum in Atlanta.
The competition consists of teams representing universities worldwide who simulate a fast turnaround analysis and presentation which they make to a panel of senior management judges on a corporate hot topic. This year there were 22 teams and two different cases. “We had about eight hours to read it, analyze it, suggest solutions to the business management problem in the case, make a power point presentation and then present it the next day,” said student Ngoc Dao, who is getting her MBA in Supply Chain Management. “I wanted to learn more about supply chain in different industries.”
The rest of the team, consisting of Alvin Chen, Tina Cosentino, Michael Billikopf and Zach Wise, all are specializing in the food and agribusiness areas. These are great future leaders for the industry.Santa Clara Student IFAMA Competition Winners
