A team of QSB MBA students brought home a third place win and $3,000 in prize money from the Thunderbird School of Management’s Sustainable Innovation Summit on November 15 in Glendale, Arizona.

The QSB MBA team was one of just ten finalist teams chosen to compete from a pool of 138 teams representing 47 universities in 11 countries. In the final round of the competition students were required to develop innovative and sustainable business solutions to address real challenges presented by sponsoring global corporations Johnson & Johnson and EcoVerdance. Executives at EcoVerdance, an alliance of environmentally minded companies, gave each participant in the final round 1,000 shares in their company.

Congratulations to QSB MBA team members Amar Bawagi, Linsen Bai, Aniket Lonkar and Sandeep Mantri.
