Students Shine at Case Tourneys

A team of Haas undergraduates won first prize at the Andersen National Business Consulting Challenge Competition in St. Charles, Illinois this spring. The annual Consulting Challenge begins at the regional level with 144 teams from fifteen leading universities. The winning team received a $5,000 cash prize and a $20,000 scholarship for the Haas undergraduate program. The team members were Michael Mashintchian, Tara Kramlich, Patrick Stodel, Sandy Lee, and Hadi Tan.

Haas MBA students placed third at the 12th annual Babcock MBA Marketing Case Competition. The competition, held in late January at Wake Forest University's Babcock Graduate School of Management, gave students from eight leading business schools 36 hours to come up with a marketing plan for GlaxoSmithKleine HIV/AIDS drugs in South Africa. UC Berkeley's team consisted of Jay Badenhope, Kerry Barthold, Jason Daniel, Alice Eagleson, Nancy Iverson, Eric Meyerson, and Jason Saculles.

GlaxoSmithKleine representatives were eager to implement many of the ideas that resulted from the competition. Haas team member Eric Meyerson noted, "The client told us they were extremely impressed with our ideas and that we should 'watch the news' to see what they use." Harvard took the first place prize, while UT Austin placed second.
