Finals Set for March 30 in Hartford, CT

The Feld Career Center was happy to host The Hartford on campus this past Monday evening for the second annual Campus Case Competition. Five teams from Boston University competed for the $1,000 top prize. Each team was asked to prepare and present for 15 minutes on the following criteria:

  • Terriers Financial Services Company (Terriers), a fictitious company offering a full range of insurance and investment products, is interested in utilizing mobile technology applications to improve their business segments.
  • Terriers hired your consulting team to analyze the mobile technology trends and opportunities for the company.
  • The final deliverable is a recommendation on what the mobile application will do regarding the best option to achieve Terriers’ goals.

Executives from The Hartford were judges on the panel and their decision was difficult in selecting a winner as members from each team had great presentations skills and analytical thinking. The winning SMG team (below) consisted of Myron Chen (Tay Jen-Ti) (BSBA ’13), Yiwei (Vivian) Chen (BSBA ’14), Christopher Kovalik (BSBA ’13), Katrina Lyter (BSBA ’13), and Haobo Shen (BSBA ’13).
