McGill Desautels launches the Management Science Case Writing Competition
The inaugural McGill Desautels Management Science Case Writing Competition, organized by Assistant Professor (Teaching) Rob Glew and supported by EY, turns the tables on the traditional case competition format. Since May, 34 BCom students worked to write case studies on their experience with operations management and analytics on their summer work placements. Topics ranged from natural language processing for classifying documents to reducing food waste with inventory management, showing the diversity of students’ experiences, and helping to shape teaching at McGill. The winner, Matthew Laroche, and two runners-up, Maëlle Morin and Amine Kobeissi, all U3 students, were selected by a team of academic and industry judges on the criteria of teaching suitability, innovation, and quality of writing. The awards were presented on November 16 by EY partner Waël Tfaily.
The competition, open to all U2 and U3 students who have taken MGCR372 Operations Management, will return next year and interested students should contact case.writing.competition [at] gmail.com for more information
