“I’ve often hit a wall during training”: Jerome Tan, Case Competition Veteran

The following is a guest post from fourth year undergrad Jerome Tan, fondly known as the ‘serial winner’ of several competitions that our students have participated in.

The Sauder Summit Global Case Competition in Vancouver.  Here’s more from Jerome:
