A team of three Cleveland State University MBA students from the Nance College of Business Administration placed fourth in the KeyBank/Fisher College of Business Minority MBA Case Competition.
Among the 20 teams that competed in the 2011 event, CSU placed above all other Ohio schools in the competition, including Case Western Reserve University, The Ohio State University and Kent State University. The contest's top three winners were University of Michigan, University of Wisconsin and the University of Washington.
In the competition, organizers propose a business problem, and teams are tasked to create solutions through a written thesis. Teams have 30 days to present their submissions to a panel of KeyBank executives, who act as judges.
"We are proud of the performance of our MBA students in the KeyBank Case Competition. Their ability to analyze real-world business problems and develop effective plans to solve those problems is evident from the outcome of the competition," said Robert Scherer, Ph.D., Dean of the Nance College of Business.
Founded in 1964, Cleveland State University is a public research institution that provides a dynamic setting for engaged learning. With an enrollment of more than 17,000 students, eight colleges and approximately 200 academic programs, CSU was again chosen for 2011 as one of America's Best Colleges by U.S. News & World Report.
