Congratulations to team “Ecosmith Consulting” for their FIRST place at the HEC CSR case competition.
This was a very competitive event that hosted 21 teams, with 5 teams advancing to finals. The competition consisted of three rounds; one research case on covid proofing the supply chain and distribution of fruit juices in Switzerland, and two 3 hours cases to round out the event. Round 2 was focused on end-to-end process optimization of sustainable coconut farming in Philippines. In the 3rd round- the finals, the team tackled issues faced by M/s Schneider Electric in its ambitions of becoming the world leader in sustainability and global impact.
After gruelling rounds of solving the case and fielding questions, Team JMSB represented by Aravindhan Balasubramanian, Aditya Chaubey, Rahul Ramachandran and Suresh Naidu Balaji placed FIRST amongst all the universities competing. So proud of our team and all the work they did leading up to this event. We at the MBACCC are proud of your achievement and we hope you had a wonderful case competition experience!
