Strong JMSB Performance at the Eller Ethics Case Competition
October 28, 2010 - Two students represented the John Molson School of Business (JMSB) and the school’s case competition program at The University of Arizona’s Collegiate Eller Ethics Case Competition.
The team delivered a solid performance but was edged out in the cumulative two preliminary rounds by the overall winner of the competition, Elon University. Elon’s first round presentation was better; and while JMSB presented a solid second round of Questions & Answers, the team did not make the final cut.
The competition has three phases. The first round is a 20-minute presentation with a five-minute Questions & Answers period on issues pertinent to the presentation. During the second round, the judges ask eight predetermined standard questions to all teams. The cumulative scores are tallied and the winners in each division proceed to the finals. During the final round, teams trim their presentations down to 10 minutes and one standard question is asked by the judges.
Congratulations to Isabella Matteo and Mitchell Robitaille for their comprehensive research and presentation of recommendations at the competition. Thanks to Jonathan Kuczer, their lead coach, for bringing them to a performance level that makes JMSB very proud. A special thank you goes to Mark Haber, Academic Advisor to the Competition program, for accompanying the team to Arizona.
Special thanks to our exclusive sponsor, Pfizer Canada, for their support and encouragement.
