“Let’s Talk About the Elephant in the Room: Engaging with Privilege, Neocolonialism, and Oppression in Global Health Work”
The Desautels Faculty of Management was well represented at this year’s HEC Corporate Responsibility Challenge. Among the twelve competing teams, MBA students Taha Ataullah, Bernardo Prôa Bressane, Hardeep Singh, and Karen Vanthuyne secured second place, while Angela Hernandez Castillo, Matt Jones, Akshay Kohli, and Margarita Komarova placed fifth.
The latter team was invited to present their case solution to the Board of Directors of ACEM Montreal Community Loan Fund in April.
The Desautels MBA case team composed of Catherine Du Pont, Jiawei Lin, Helena Rati, Karen Sidhu, Jessica Truong secured first place at the USC Marshall Global Case Competition, which was hosted at the Amazon Headquarters in Seattle, WA. Congratulations to all!
An undergraduate team from Desautels came home from a case competition in Portugal with an invite to go back for a month-long project aimed at making the city of Porto more attractive to startups. The prize is doubly sweet, as neither the team nor the officials saw it coming. Team member Aarushi Kumar says that “It was not something we were expecting and it was not something the organizers were expecting to do, either.”
