Manning School of Business News and Highlights

Winners of the Third Annual Darkside Case Competition announced

The third annual Darkside Case Competition was won by BBA students Christine Moreau, Alexandra Wood, Run Li, and James MacGougan. Their team offered insightful analysis on university Frosh Week and suggested recommendations for how this first-year event may be improved. Cases from the darkside of business include workers in poorly managed organizations, increasingly difficult environment for union organizing rights, and examples of how the broader system of business permits organizations to do questionable things. The competition was organized by Dr. Jim Grant and Professor Martha Cheney. Shelley McMullin and Drs. Harish Kapoor and Igor Semenenko were competition judges.
