Auburn MBAs headed to SEC case study challenge

12 Apr

Four graduate students will represent the Auburn University College of Business this weekend at the inaugural SEC MBA Case Competition in Columbia, Mo.

Ben Whitlow, Alex Stevenson, David Schroll and Brittney Rieben will be given a case at 10 a.m. Friday and must submit the case by 7 a.m. Saturday. Beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, waves of teams will present throughout the day with a winner chosen that evening. The teams must evaluate a real-time business case from event-sponsor AT&T, create a proposal for the company and identify the best solution to the problem.

What’s the case?

“It could be anything,” said Jim Parrish, Director of Admissions and Operations for Auburn University College of Business MBA Graduate Programs, who is serving as the school’s logistics coordinator for the case study, which will be held at the University of Missouri. “It could be marketing, management, branding, supply chain. We won’t know until we get there.”

At stake: $17,500 in prize money, including a $10,000 first prize.
