Business Students at Florida A&M University Win National Competition

Business school students from Florida A&M University in Tallahassee won the National Student Case Competition of the National Black MBA Association. The event, sponsored by Chrysler Corporation, awards $35,000 in scholarships, $15,000 of which goes to students at the winning business school. Each entrant is given a hypothetical business case and is asked to work up solutions to the company’s problems. Students develop a business plan and give an oral presentation to a group of business executives who judge the proposal on presentation and the feasibility of the students’ solutions.

Florida A&M beat out black MBA students from New York University and the University of Chicago, who finished in second and third place, respectively. Students from 27 other business schools also entered the competition.
