New Delhi, April 30 (IANS) Amid the Covid-19 gloom, five students of Delhi University’s Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies (SSCBS) have brought some good news by winning the Global Case Competition at Harvard (GCCH) 2020, defeating more than 140 rival teams from universities such as Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Johns Hopkins University, HEC Paris and London Business School (LSE).
The GCCH is the world’s most prestigious case competition organised by the IFSA Network and Harvard GSAS Business Club.
The competition brings together students from across the world to compete on a finance case involving strategic management at the Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The students get to interact with the invited companies, financial institutions, guests and partners. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year the competition was organised through video submissions and video conferencing.
The prize includes an amount of $10,000. School of Business and Economics, Brazil, and Johns Hopkins University were declared the first and second runner-up, respectively.
The winning team comprised of 2nd year students from the BMS and BBA (FIA) courses of SSCBS — Sparsh Sehgal, Ojas Jhamb, Kunal Vats, Raghav Nath and Aanand Negi, under the mentorship of faculty members Neeraj Sehrawat and Amit Kumar.
“It was a great opportunity for our students to learn and interact with other international students. I am glad that our students are achieving international laurels and bringing positive news, especially during such times,” said Poonam Verma, Principal, SSCBS.
