JMSB Takes Top Prize at the Prestigious 2008 Eller Ethics Case Competition
Two John Molson School of Business (JMSB) students won the 2008 Eller Ethics Case Competition, which took place at Eller College of Management, University of Arizona, from October 23 – 25 in Tucson, Arizona.
Sandy Poiré and Meaghen Annett competed against teams from 21 other business schools from around the world. They were the only Canadian team, and defeated some of the most recognized business schools in the United States including the University of Illinois (2nd place), University of Texas at Austin (3rd place) and Case Western Reserve University (4th place).
“Teaching our students the importance of corporate social responsibility and ethics in business practices is an absolute priority at the JMSB,” said Sanjay Sharma, JMSB Dean. “This prize shows that our students understand how to apply these theories to the real world, and we couldn’t be more proud of them.”
The Eller Ethics Case Competition is designed to challenge students’ ethical reasoning and promote awareness of corporate social responsibility. The competition exposes students to a business ethics case they could face in their professional careers. Student teams then analyze the case, present their business model, and respond to questions posed by a panel of judges.
These impressive results would not have been possible without the lead coach, Jonathan Kuczer, the help of Tim Field and the continued dedication of JMSB Head Coach, Mark Haber, and John Molson Competitions Committee (JMCC).
JMCC would like to thank Ciot, Gestion de Patrimoine Brisebois-Forbes, the John Molson School of Business and the Commerce and Administration Students’ Association (CASA) for their generous support towards helping JMSB attend the competition.
