Posted on December 11, 2008

TORONTO – November 22, 2008 – A team of Queen’s MBA students came home with a second place finish and $2,000 in prize money at the 3rd Annual Rotman Net Impact Corporate Social Responsibility Case Competition held on November 22 at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management. Thirty-three student teams from universities across North America competed to solve a business challenge using social and environmental factors in addition to the bottom line.

The QSB team was the highest ranked Canadian team, second only to Stanford University (California). Two teams from the John Molson School of Business at Concordia University tied for third. The case was based on challenges facing Westport Innovations, a Canadian company that develops Liquefied Natural Gas engines. The day-long competition also featured a keynote address from Hugh MacLeod, Head of the Ontario Climate Change Secretariat.

Congratulations to Queen’s MBA team members Luba Protopopova, Adam Grahn, Ben Reynolds and Pallavi Tripathi.
