Students Win At Case Competition....

Students from all over the world came to Guelph to compete in the inaugural Sustainability in Agribusiness Case Study Competition, hosted by the College of Management and Economics on March 16 and 17. The case competition gives students the opportunity to apply their skills to real-world problems facing the agribusiness industry, which spans agricultural input industries to food retailing.

“Sustainability in agribusiness is a key issue in undergraduate teaching and positions U of G internationally in business case teaching and research,” says Prof. Andreas Boecker, Department of Food, Agricultural and Resource Economics.

The winning team consisted of Robin Callaghan, fourth-year B.Sc. (Agriculture); Anissa Collinshaw, third-year BAS; Eric Martin, fourth-year B.Comm. (Agricultural Business); and Logan Martin, fourth-year B.Comm. (Agricultural Business).

The competition, which will become an annual event, will involve direct input from industry in case development and writing as well as interaction with students through a preconference case workshop, as judges in the competition and for recruiting purposes.
