MBA Student Team Wins Second Place in Case Writing Competition

A team of three MBA students won second place and $1,000 in the Baylor University-USASBE Student Case Writing Competition.

A team of three MBA students won second place and $1,000 in the Baylor University-USASBE Student Case Writing Competition. The case entitled “Equal Exchange: Trading Fairly and Making a Profit” was the brainchild of Joanna Kaminski, Samantha Marchese and Cara Vullo. The case study was an outgrowth of work they began during their Summer 2011 research project which was supervised by Janet Rovenpor, Ph.D., professor and chair of the management and marketing department. 

Manhattan College was one of only six colleges selected to participate in the completion, which took place in New Orleans on Jan. 12. Just being selected as one of the six schools to participate in the competition was an honor as the team’s case study had to compete against case studies authored by other national and international student teams. This initial judging of the case studies took place in early November 2011. The field research was supported by a Louis F. Capalbo Professorship Grant.
