MBAs prevail in case competition focused on strategy


On March 23, a team of MBA students from Sauder’s Robert H. Lee Graduate School, won the business strategy case competition, co-hosted by McKinsey & Company and the University of Calgary.

Presented by U of C’s Strategic Management Association, in partnership with the global consulting firm, the inaugural event attracted teams from the Haskayne School of Business and Sauder School of Business.

The students were put to the test with a real life case for Twin Hills, a proposed Calgary development focused on social return on investment.

The winning Sauder team, consisting of Geoffrey Carran, Chris De Eyre, Ravi Garsha and Ralph Kurt McFee, presented their recommendations to a panel of judges, which included consultants from McKinsey & Company and the CEO of Twin Hills.
