An Outstanding Performance by Honors MBA Team at John Molson MBA International Case Competition - Almost Made it to the Top!
Once again a team from BGU’s HMBA Program participated in the John Molson School of Business MBA International Case Competition and won four of their five cases! Up against the best and the brightest, our team displayed their remarkable skills in analysis, strategy and delivery of complex business plans. Not only did they demonstrate top-notch intellectual prowess but they also performed with heart.
BGU’s team competed against UdeM’s HEC, The Aalto University School of Business from Finland, Paderborn Universitat from Germany, The University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management and Concordia’s JMSB, and won the last four of these cases. Participation in the semi-finals depended on leading in the individual divisions of the Competition; having been placed in the same division as the University of Minnesota, the ultimate winner, BGU did not lead this division. However, the one time the Minnesota team tasted defeat was when beaten by BGU!
Thanks to the support of donors like you, we have raised the funds necessary to finance the 2014 BGU team participation at the competition.
But we don't want to stop there: With your help we will create a new CABGU scholarship fund, offer our local Quebec youth the chance to connect with Israel's innovative spirit and study Business & Commerce at BGU.
We are very grateful for the support of our corporate sponsors, whose contribution has contributed to these students' professional enrichment.
