2016 Internal Case Competition a tight race to the end

In one of the most hotly-contested case competitions in recent memory, the CMU-Q team Alpha Consulting bested a very competitive field of CMU and CMU-Q students. They worked for two days to prepare a strong analysis and compelling presentation that edged them into the winner's circle.

The Alpha Consulting team included Rachel Fowler from CMU, as well as CMU-Q’s Sampriti Jain, Awais Shamim, and Mohammed Zakaria.

This year's case focused on Vodafone Qatar and the highly competitive telecommunications market in Qatar. There were 26 students who were selected to participate, including four from CMU Pittsburgh.

“The tradition of case competitions is very important in a serious business education,” said Patrick McGinnis, distinguished career professor in business communication and the organizer of the Internal Case Competition. “The cases are realistic problems the students could face in consulting.”

The Internal Case Competition at CMU-Q is an event that brings together business-minded students in Qatar and Pittsburgh. The judging panel included Stephen Pajewski, executive director of the Undergraduate Business Program at Carnegie Mellon’s Tepper School of Business, as well as several members of the CMU-Q Business Administration faculty. Eight CMU-Q alumni members also participated in judging.
