UF MBA finishes second at Baylor ethics case competition

A team of students from UF MBA at the Hough Graduate School of Business in the Warrington College of Business Administration placed second at the Dale P. Jones Business Ethics Forum’s 5th Annual Business MBA Case Competition held Nov. 16-­18 at Baylor University.

UF MBA’s second-­place team, which earned $1,200 for their finish, consisted of Sindhura Akula, Denna Bettini, Brad Casey and Jennifer Gale. Bettini was one of three competitors named “Best Presenter” and won $250. Casey was one of three recognized for “Best Q&A” and won $100.

Baylor’s case competition is designed to “advance the development of ethical leaders through experiential learning and to recognize and promote MBA students and their programs for participation in a national case competition in ethical leadership.”

Schools in the 10-­team field were divided into leagues, and the winner from each league advanced to the finals. Teams received their cases and had 24 hours to devise solutions and present them to a panel of judges.
