Students Mathieu Milliand and Fia Stobbe represented Concordia University’s John Molson School of Business (JMSB) at the Ninth Annual Collegiate Ethics Case Competition, at the University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management.
This year's case was about how a bank should proceed with a family facing negative equity on their home and whose present situation would make it difficult for them to make their mortgage payments.
The competition consisted of three phases. The first round was a 20-minute presentation with a five-minute Q & A on issues pertinent to the presentation. In the second round, the judges asked six predetermined standard questions to all teams. The cumulative scores were added together and the winners in each division went on to the finals. In the finals, teams had to trim their presentations down to 10 minutes and one standard question was asked of each of them.
Despite an impressive showing by the JMSB team, they were edged out of the competition after the cumulative two preliminary rounds. The team from the University of Texas at Austin took home top honours, followed by the teams from Northern Illinois University, U.S. Naval Academy and Brigham Young University.
Congratulations to Mathieu Milliand and Fia Stobbe for their comprehensive research and presentation of recommendations at the competition. The team thanks coaches Tim Field and Cleo Roch for helping them become successful competitors. Special thanks to Mark Haber, head coach and Advisor to the Undergraduate Competition Program for his dedication and support.
The team would also like to express deep gratitude to sponsor MacDougall, MacDougall, & MacTier
for their support and encouragement of the case competition program.
