Business Finishes Among Top Schools in 'Olympics of MBA Case Competitions'


<p><location>MONTREAL</location>, <chron>Jan. 22</chron> /CNW/ -- A team of MBA students from the University of South Carolina's <person>Darla Moore</person> School of Business has continued its award-winning performance this year in the 2010 John Molson MBA International Case Competition in <location>Montreal</location>, <location>Canada</location>.  The annual competition, which is the oldest and largest MBA case competition in the world, is often referred to as the "Olympics of MBA Case Competitions." This year's competition featured 144 MBA students from 36 universities across the globe.</p>
<p>"We continue to see strong evidence of the Moore School's outstanding academic leadership in international business," says Christine LaCola, Assistant Dean and Director, Graduate Division at Moore.  "Having our International MBA students compete and win consistently against the top MBA students from around the world is quite compelling!"</p>
<p>This year's team from the Moore School's International MBA program was the only undefeated team in the divisional round of the competition -- keeping its unbeaten streak in the divisional round over the past two years.  The team finished second overall while the team's coach, Pat DeMouy, of the School's Management Department, was awarded the J. <person>Pierre Brunet</person> Coaching Award as the top coach in the competition.  Previously, the Moore team made its presentation entirely in French to honor the School's 25th anniversary of participating in the competition -- the only School from an English-based curriculum to do so.  Last year, the Moore School team placed first overall in the competition.</p>
<p>"It's rewarding to see the tremendous performance of our MBA students in international competition," <person>Mr. DeMouy</person> said.  "When you work with them closely every day and see them in action, it is clear why corporate recruiters place such a high value in graduates from our MBA program."</p>
