UNSW team among top 3 in global business case competition at CBS

Thursday, 3 March 2016  @Business School

UNSW ​​student Siddarth Sethi was voted best speaker and our student team was among the top three in the recent CBS Case Competitio​n.

The team - students Lily Zhang, Jerry Zhou, Siddharth Sethi and Nick Pinidiya – last week made it into the highly competitive final round in the CBS completion in Copenhagen, narrowly missing out on the top award.​

The competition was fierce, with both McGill university and the National University of Singapore being winners of the competition in previous years, and after ultimately it took the chair of the panel to decide, which resulted in NUS taking the title.  

Making it to the finals of this competition is an amazing achievement for the team and really shows the calibre of their​ work making it to the finals against teams with vast amounts of experience.
