Undergraduate students from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Shidler College of Business placed first at the 10th Annual NU-CUIBE (Northeastern University - Consortium for Undergraduate International Business Education) International Business case competition at Northeastern University D'Amore-McKim School of Business on Oct. 31 – Nov. 2, 2019.
The Shidler team was one of 15 teams from leading U.S. undergraduate international business programs to showcase their business knowledge and presentation skills in a competitive environment. Each team was given 24 hours to analyze a case study before their presentation. The teams were asked to conduct a case analysis of Phenicoptere, a Polish cosmetics start-up company and then were judged on their business analysis, recommendations and overall performance.
The finalists included Brigham Young University (second place), American University (third place), and University of Oklahoma (fourth place).
The Shidler team, which was comprised of undergraduate seniors Antoni Catalan, Ji Won Kwak, Rachel Yasunaga and Hannah Domingo, was praised by judges for their marketing and financial analyses and professional presentation skills.
