Recent Western Cape Business News
For the first time, and representing one of a few emerging market business schools, the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business will be sending a team of MBA students to compete in the prestigious John Molson MBA International Case Competition in Canada in January 2013.
A team of UCT Graduate School of Business (GSB) MBA students, lead by lecturer and MBA alumnus Johannes Schüler, are in preparation for the oldest and largest company analysis competition in the world. The John Molson MBA International Case Competition is to be held in Montreal, Canada next year from January 6 to 11.
As the only business school from Africa, Schüler says, the competition gives the GSB the opportunity to demonstrate its competence and improve its standing in the international context. “This is the largest competition of its kind in the world and receives many applications every year, of which only 36 schools are accepted,” says Schüler”.
According to team member, Marc Low, the GSB delegation is aiming high. “From the day we were selected we’ve planned to do well. We don’t just want to compete, we want to make a statement and leave a legacy,” he says.
