Business Honors Students Best in U.S.: Ellers Ethics Case Competition

 

By John Hedeman, assistant dean, Honors Program

 

We beat Georgetown, Indiana, Brigham Young, Wisconsin, Penn State, Syracuse, USC, Texas, Florida, Minnesota and others. 

 

Football? Basketball? 

 

The University of Arizona Eller Ethics Case Competition.  YES!

 

Our team of College of Business Honors Program juniors, Jared Marchiando (‘10) and Adam West (‘10), beat all those teams and more to finish in 2nd place in the case competition on Friday.  The only university to outpace us was Concordia University from Montreal, Canada.  That means we were the tops in the USA. 

 

Many of the teams include MBA students—making the performance of Jared and Adam even more outstanding.

 

This is the third year we have sent a team to the competition, and this is easily our best finish.
