Students Adam Forlini, Kirsten Law, Alexander Robinson and Anna Vinitskaia represented Concordia University’s John Molson School of Business (JMSB) at the Citi International Case Competition at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) Business School in Hong Kong.
This year’s case focused on Hong Kong International Terminals (HIT). The issues were capacity, efficiencies, and competition. The judges found the JMSB team’s solution of using barges for transshipment creative, but wanted more detail. Despite an impressive showing by the team, they were edged out of the competition after the preliminary round.
The team from Thammasat University in Thailand took home top honours, followed by the teams from the University of British Columbia, University of Southern California and National University of Singapore.
Congratulations to the Concordia team for their comprehensive research and presentation of recommendations at the competition. The team thanks Coach Peter Dedicik as well as alumni Jean-Sebastien Belanger and Jonathan Laurence-Ruel for coaching them to a very solid performance.
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 its deepest gratitude to exclusive sponsor Pfizer for their support and encouragement of the case competition program.
