BBA Teams Win International Competitions

Our undergrads have emerged champions at two recent international case competitions.

At the International Case Competition at Maastricht that took place in the Netherlands recently, BBA students Lenard Lou, Jovin Loh, Low Li Ting and Kenneth Leong, accompanied by faculty advisor, Deputy Dean Hum Sin Hoon, competed against 15 other undergraduate teams from international business schools to emerge winners at the end of an intensive week of case analyses and presentations. The team brought home the championship trophy which the School last won in 2012.

This is the fifth edition of the International Case Competition at Maastricht, organised by Maastricht University’s School of Business and Economics. The competition highlights strategic challenges and managerial dilemmas encountered by today’s business leaders, and requires competing teams to solve real business problems within short time frames.

Earlier in April, another team of undergraduates trumped 14 other business student teams from Europe, Asia and North America at a case competition in Spain. Abigail Ho, Jerome Tan, Chan Yi and Timothy Leow, accompanied by faculty advisor Prof Lau Geok Theng, took home the top prize at The University of Navarra International Case Competition (UNICC) in the city of Pamplona. The annual competition consists of fast-paced case challenges held over four days, and is judged by a panel of professionals from the national and regional business community.

Congratulations to the teams for flying the School’s flag high!
