Three finalist teams from two of the nation’s top business schools will compete for $70,000 in scholarship awards in The Executive Leadership Foundation’s (ELF) 2015 Business Case Competition sponsored by ExxonMobil.  Two MBA teams from Emory’s Goizueta Business School and one team from Vanderbilt’s Owen Graduate School of Management have advanced to the final round and will compete for first, second and third place prizes.

The competition will take place in Virginia this Friday, May 1.

Each year, the Competition invites MBA students at select business schools to analyze a compelling business issue that challenges their critical thinking and analytical and communications skills. The three finalist teams will present their cases to a panel of esteemed judges who will select the first, second and third place winners to receive $35,000, $20,000 and $15,000, respectively.

This marks the third year Emory has advanced to the final round while Vanderbilt is making its second appearance in the Competition.
