McGill BCom students put their case analysis and presentation skills to the test once again at the 12th annual McGill Management International Case Competition (MMICC 2012) which took place from March 20 to 24. After presenting in the morning and afternoon to 2 different panels of six judges, the McGill team placed 3rd overall out of a total of 9 competing universities. In 2nd place was the University of Belgrade and the winner was the University of Melbourne.
McGill's team consisted of Alexia Belisle, Anne-Claude Gendron, Nishank (Baba) Thakur and Kathleen Wakeling. All had taken Richard Donovan's "Case Analysis and Presentation" class. Special thanks go out to Professors Angela Burlton, Vadim di Pietro and Suzanne Gagnon who coached and supported the team.
A big congratulation to Alexia, Anne-Claude, Baba and Kathleen for an exceptional performance!
