BCom teams, both coached by Associate Professor Kin Lo, have nabbed first and a second place wins in recent international business case competitions.

BCom students Conor Clarance, Jayden Jiang, Monique Wong and Paulina Aksenova took first at the Marshall International Case Competition, which was held from February 12 to 16. Hosted by the Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California, it is the world’s largest and longest running, undergraduate case competition.

“It’s probably the most competitive event of its kind with 30 business schools participating by invitation only,” says Lo.
