Aspen_InstituteDaniels College of Business MBA students placed fourth at the Aspen Institute’s 2013 Business & Society International MBA Case Competition, held April 19 in New York City. The team composed of Daniels International MBA students Amanda Ford and Adam Kibble and MBA student Phillip Cantrell was one of five to compete in the finals—out of 25 teams from top business schools around the world.

Students presented on a case authored by the Yale School of Management and the National University of Singapore Business School entitled, “Golden Agri Resources and Sustainability.” Students acted as consultants to Golden Agri, the world’s second-largest palm oil plantation company, addressing topics such as sustainability certification, regional economic development and stakeholder engagement with activist environmental organizations.

In 2012, Daniels won the Aspen Institute Business & Society International MBA Case Competition, bringing home a $20,000 prize and an additional $1,000 to donate to a nonprofit.
