GW Team Advances to International Case Competition

From left to right: Bilal Siddiqui, Anthony Shop, James Thurman (faculty advisor), Erik Walenza-Slabe and Timothy Derr are heading to the John Molson MBA International Case Competition.

A team of GWSB MBA students will represent GW and compete against 35 other teams in the John Molson International Case Competition, held Jan. 3-8 in Montreal, Canada. The competition, which is one of the oldest and most well known on all MBA case compeitions, is run by students. GWSB MBA students Bilal Siddiqui, Anthony Shop, Erik Walenza-Slabe and Timothy Derr will compete, with Matthew Lounderback serving as an alternate.

The students were part of the GMBA Intramural Case Competition, held Dec. 3-4. The second year class takes Business Strategy as one of the final core courses of their program, and the Case Competition is the capstone event held in conjunction with the class.  All students participate in two rounds of case presentations, and the top three scoring teams participate in a final round.

The top three teams did an outstanding job in their presentations and were very close in ranking as follows:

1st Place – Team: Zane R Howard, Ileana Iliescu, Dmitry Polyakov,  Eduardo Ulloa and Amy L Warren.
2nd Place – Team: Michael Nothum, Robin S Pollak, Scott A Rechler, Andrew H Schneider and Peter M Schoenbauer.
3rd Place – Team: Jeremy M Dommu, Karli A Kasonik, Brianna T Pyfrom, Erik Walenza-Slabe and Justin R Wright.
