The Goizueta team was one of three finalist teams competing for $70,000 in scholarships.

The annual competition invites MBA/MA teams from 70 business schools to analyze a compelling business issue that challenged their critical thinking, analytical and communications skills. The 2014 winners were selected by a panel of judges including leaders from corporations and non-profits such as BAE Systems, Comcast Corporation, DuPont, United Negro College Fund, Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility and The Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering.
