Pepperdine MBAs Victorious in Top Ethics Case Competition at Baylor
Four MBA candidates at the Pepperdine University Graziadio School of Business and Management took first place in the MBA National Case Competition in Ethical Leadership at Baylor University. The competition included students from business schools around the country, including the University of Notre Dame, the University of Florida, Wake Forest University, and the University of Washington. Over $8,000 in prizes was awarded to the participants.
The winning team included MBA candidates Meghan Barnes, Bryan Zirkel, JC Garrett and Sebastian Bartl. Bartl also won the Best Question & Answer Award. The major ethical issues in the case related to finance, the struggling world economy and the implications for business and society.
The Graziadio School team “did an outstanding job and truly represented Graziadio well,” said Professor Andrea Scott, who advised the team. “It’s been a great honor to support them and I look forward to continuing to work with our Concordia team as we gear up for the 2010 John Molson MBA International Case Competition Cup in Montreal in January.”
Barnes and Garrett are also members of the team preparing for the Molson competition. Garrett, who is Malibu Graduate Business Society president, competed with the Graziadio School team at Baylor last year and won the Best Presenter Award.
The Baylor win marks the third year in a row that Graziadio School students made it to the final round in this corporate social responsible-focused competition. Last year, the school-sponsored team earned third place honors.
