The USC Marshall Full-time MBA program hosted teams from nine schools for its second annual “Everyone’s Business Global Case competition.”
Marshall’s long-running Global Consulting Challenge was rebranded the “Everyone’s Business Global Case Competition” in 2019, after the class of 2020 became the first full-time MBA program at a top 20 business school to reach gender parity.
UBS, a global wealth manager, sponsored this year’s competition, which focused on how its financial advisors can better support family business clients with the transition of family businesses to daughters and other female heirs.
Spain’s ESADE School of Business, based in Barcelona, took first place and $10,000 prize. Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business won second ($3,000) and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) took third ($2,000).
Other schools that participated include: Carnegie Mellon University’s Tepper School of Business; Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business; University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School; Vanderbilt University’s Owen Graduate School of Business and Washington University’s Olin Business School.
