Deloitte announced that a team from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business won the third annual National MBA Case Competition held at Deloitte University’s landmark campus for learning and leadership development near Dallas. The winning team received $20,000 in scholarship awards and was comprised of Sami Alami, Elise Eggart, Mike Slattery and Brendan Ward.
“Now in its third year, this competition continues to generate strong interest and enthusiasm,” said Shaun Budnik, president, Deloitte Foundation. “By exposing these top MBA students to real world situations we help sharpen their skills and prepare them for the highly competitive global business landscape. We look forward to continuing to work with educators on programs like this to help develop some of our most promising talent.”
Fifteen finalist student teams from top MBA programs analyzed a complex business issue for a company in the retail grocery and boutique coffee industry. Each team was provided with business case details and a ten-hour time limit to evaluate the hypothetical scenario and present their thinking and recommendations to a panel of judges.
