NUS Team on Exchange Wins McCombs Case Competition

McCombs Case Comp

Congratulations to our BBA team for clinching the top prize in the McCombs Fall Case Competition, the most prestigious case competition event held by the McCombs School of Business, University of Texas at Austin.  The annual competition gives students an opportunity to showcase their business talents by helping to solve a real-world business problem proposed by corporate sponsors.

The team comprising Lee Wee Siang, Justin Low Jie Hong, Tay Si Song and Jasper Yong Jia Hua beat 34 others to emerge victors. The students, who are currently on exchange under the Student Exchange Programme (SEP), credit their win to the opportunities provided by the NUS BBA programme.

“We really appreciate this SEP experience and would like to thank those who worked hard to provide us with this once in a life time opportunity,” says Wee Siang.

The SEP offers invaluable international experience for students to develop an awareness and appreciation of other cultures, as well as broaden their outlook and approach to doing business.  For this team, the experience was further enriched when they chose to make the most of the opportunities that came their way.

“We hope to inspire other students to take part in more of such competitions during their exchange as well. It has certainly been a great learning experience for us,” added Wee Siang.
