In the final round of the 2018 Aspen Business & Society International MBA Case Competition in New York City, our team of students from the MBA Sustainable Business Practices program edged out The George Washington University and Wilfred Laurier University to take third place behind New York University and the University of Denver. Please join us in congratulating Kelsey, Michael, Patricia and Joseph for their hard work and incredible accomplishment!
The Aspen Institute is a “nonpartisan forum for values-based leadership and the exchange of ideas.” In support of this mission, the Aspen Institute hosts an annual Business & Society International MBA Case Competition, in which student teams from a select group of colleges and universities have a 72-hour window to address a new and challenging business case.
This year’s case focused on Marina Bay Sands Singapore, a luxury resort. Students were tasked with identifying detailed, practical, and actionable means to decrease the negative environmental impact of the resort through innovative new sustainability solutions. Close to 1,000 students participated in first-round competitions at 25 colleges and universities across the world. Four teams participated in the first round at Duquesne University.
