A team of four College of Business and Economics students placed second—and was awarded $2,000—at the fifth annual Berg Cup case study competition, a nationally renowned event that was held last weekend at the University of Pittsburgh.
The Towson group was one of just eight teams—each comprising four undergraduate students—to participate.
For the competition, the group was presented with a case study by the University of Pittsburgh’s David Berg Center for Ethics and Leadership. The case study involved ethical dilemmas in business, and the team was tasked with analyzing those dilemmas and providing solutions to them.
TU students Sandrine Emambu, Shaun Kravitz, An Tran and Meredith Walter, all members of the university’s Project Management Association, defeated teams of undergraduate students from such schools as the University of Pennsylvania, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and Tennessee Tech, among others. The United States Naval Academy placed first in the competition.
