This past weekend, MBA students from the Martin J. Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University presented their case analysis at the University at Buffalo School of Management MBA Case Competition.
In the case competition, teams of students from top business programs were tasked to analyze a real-world case. At the final presentation, teams offered their solutions to a panel of executive judges. Participants had a chance to win both team and individual prizes. Awards were presented during a ceremony following the presentation.
The competition required two second-year and two first-year full-time students to participate. The Whitman School team was comprised of MBA students Mariam Kvataliani ’19, Kruti Valia ’19, and Aarrthi Manoharan ’20, as well as Manimegala Muthu ’20, who is pursuing a master’s degree in supply chain. John Petosa, Whitman School professor of accounting practice, served as their academic advisor.
Prior to presenting, the students developed a two-page analysis of a real-life scenario. After a careful, qualitative analysis, the team was invited to the semi-final stage in which they were able to present their case followed by a question-and-answer session held by the judges. Kvataliani and Valia presented the team’s solution at the University at Buffalo School of Management on April 5-6, 2019.
“I am so proud of our team making it to the finals of the UB competition,”said Petosa. “The experience our team gained competing can’t be matched in the classroom and our students will be better for having put themselves through the judging process. Congrats to the winners, but truly all who participated won!”
