Teams Compete in National MBA Case Competition in Ethical Leadership
Teams from 12 universities across the U.S. competed in the National MBA Case Competition in Ethical Leadership at the Dale P. Jones Business Ethics Forum, hosted by Baylor University’s Hankamer School of Business (HSB). The competition launched Thursday morning and wrapped up Friday when the student teams presented their solutions before panels of judges.
Iowa State earned first place in the competition. Baylor University came in second and Pepperdine University placed third.
Brigham Young University, the University of Cincinnati, Indiana University, the University of Kansas, Kansas State University, the University of Minnesota, Missouri State University, Oklahoma State University and Texas Christian University also participated in the competition.
“These students will face many ethical dilemmas throughout their career,” Matt Quade, director of HSB’s Christian Leadership and Ethics and the Kimberly and Aaron P.
