A team of Queen’s Commerce students took home first place in the NUS-DBS International Case Competition held in Lion City, Singapore, from September 16-20.

Teams from Asia, Australia, Europe and North America competed at the inaugural event, hosted by the National University of Singapore Business School and sponsored by DBS Bank, one of the largest financial services groups in Asia.

To make the case competition more challenging, the format of the competition was not announced until the initial briefing session when teams arrived in Singapore. George Boland, professor and faculty advisor to the QSB team said, “The students gave their “A” game all around and really nailed the case.”

QSB’s winning team included Commerce 2010 students Will Fang, Sheldon McCormick and Michael Portner-Gartke, and Commerce 2011 student Jenny Wang.
