CSB/SJU Students Win 1st Place in 2020 SAM Virtual competition!

Our CSB/SJU Society for the Advancement of Management Case Study Competition Team.  McKenna Meyer, Paige Dobberstein, Margaret Kosir, Will Fischer, & Clarke Andrews were awarded first place at the case study presentation competition & second place in the written competition

 As we all know, these last few weeks have been challenging.  Our team was schedule to present in Nashville this week, but like many activities, the conference moved online.  The case study was on a retirement community in Florida called, The Villages.  The judges were impressed by the students’ research, recommendations, and depth of analysis.  The judges personally thanked our students for their positive attitudes during these difficult circumstances.

 The CSB/SJU S.A.M. Case Research Team has now won first place six times in the last seven years!  These students will be presenting on Scholarship and Creativity Day via Zoom if you would like to hear more about their experience.
