Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business Full-time MBA students Angel Daniels, Kerem Eroglu, Marshall Johnson, and Felicia Lamonthe won second place at the National Black MBA Association (NBMBAA) Graduate Case Competition. This year’s win is the highest Scheller has ever placed in the competition. Daniels, Eroglu, Johnson, and Lamonthe competed against 35 of the nation’s top colleges and universities and were awarded $15,000 as their second-place prize.
For more than 25 years, the NBMBAA has welcomed MBA candidates from the nation’s top business schools to compete for $50,000 in cash prizes and employment opportunities. Teams of four MBA students have one month to analyze a complex business case using their problem-solving skills and present their research before a panel of senior-level executives from leading corporations and academic institutions from across the country.
“I’m beyond honored to be a part of our amazing team and taking home second place at the NBMBAA Case Competition,” said Daniels. “I’m also honored to receive a best presenter award. Working with this team made it easy to be passionate. What made this win possible was our teamwork and the encouragement we received from our case mentors.”
This year’s winners were announced at the NBMBAA Career Expo in Chicago, where over 50 Scheller MBA students interacted with more than 120 employers seeking candidates for their full-time career and internship opportunities.
