Winning Team NICC

On February 12th and 13th CU Boulder welcomed 19 teams of MBAs to compete in the 15th annual Net Impact Case Competition. The teams created innovative solutions to a case about impact finance and presented them to industry judges, including former volunteers and competitors who had participated in the Case Competition in the past.

The University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management won the first prize of $10,000. INSEAD took 2nd place and won $5,000, and Georgia Tech took 3rd place and won $2,500. This year’s Net Impact Case Competition title sponsor was the Impact Finance Center at the University of Denver.

The Leeds School of Business is known for Net Impact Case Competition, an event that’s run entirely by MBA student volunteers. This year 25 volunteers made the event a success by recruiting judges, running the operations of the event and writing the case the competition is based on.

“We’re a small but mighty school,” said Elise Ferguson, Co-President of the Net Impact Case Competition. “We have so much student involvement in running events and programs, and we’re lucky to be able to do so much. Every year more and more students are involved in the Case Competition.”
