Queen’s sweep at Mastercard Forepoint Case Competition

Posted on March 12, 2009

For the second consecutive year, the Queen’s Commerce team won first place at the annual Mastercard Forepoint Case Competition. Hosted by the University of Alberta Marketing Association, the ForePoint Case Competition brings together 16 teams of business students from all four corners of Canada, allowing students the opportunity to perform extensive research on the appointed company, industry, and the featured product or service by distributing the case three weeks before the main competition event. This places a greater emphasis on case research, analysis, and preparation, which accurately reflects how most decisions are made in the business world.

Now in its fifth year the conference attracts national student participation. This year’s winning team from Queen’s School of Business included: Michael Brewer, Michael Koichopolos, Lauren Parker and Prasanna Ranganathan.
