On the case with JMSB in Texas

By John Austen

The John Molson School of Business was one of four finalists at an International Business Challenge held at the University Texas in October.

The team comprised Eric Blanchette, Stephanie Chenevert, Cameron Fotin and Roshni Damani. They were coached by Mark Haber, Tim Field and Noor Shawwa.

Twenty business schools competed, included the University of Edinburgh, Norwegian School of Management, University of Washington, Georgetown University and Thammasat University (Bangkok, Thailand).

The JMSB won against University of Texas at Austin, Queen’s University and University of Hong Kong in their own division.

The students have three days to prepare a solution to a case that depicts actual problem faced by a business firm, and present it to a panel of judges from the business world.
