CityU’s 5th Annual MBA Case Competition

CityU’s 5th Annual MBA Case Competition

Congratulations to the 2018 MBA Case Competition winners, Nailia Gibadullina, Minh Truong Nguyen, Jasveer Kaur, Clark Jason Ngo, Yang (Cecilia) Li and, Tuan Khai!

Launched in 2014, the MBA Case Competition challenged students to act as company employees to examine critical issues, analyze the situation, identify solutions and provide the best course of actions as recommendations.

1Students formed teams of 6, received the Case Study on Monday, and had 72 hours to work on finding the best solutions and recommendation then present to a panel of judges on Friday. The condensed time frame created an intensified and exciting experience. The event brought together students with marketing, project management, computer science, accounting, finance, and technology management backgrounds from across the different programs to compete at the City University of Seattle on a real-life Business Case involving strategic management from the Harvard Business Review.

The four-day event was sponsored by the School of Management at City University of Seattle. This year students also attended a “Guide to Success Workshop”, learned rewarding and essential skills about Case Methods, Research Strategies, and Effective Presentations from the brilliant guest speakers. The MBA Case Competition gave students an opportunity to have a taste of a real world business scenario, to put their theoretical knowledge of complex business concepts into practice, cultivate their network with business professionals and like-mind individuals.
