Charlotte Weston, a senior at the Hankamer School of Business at Baylor University, with her fellow team members, won their case category during the Team Case Competition, sponsored by KPMG. The competition took place at Beta Gamma Sigma’s 2017 Global Leadership Summit. The team was selected as a winner based on their innovative and creative solution for their assigned business case, as well as the effectiveness of their presentation.

Beta Gamma Sigma’s annual Global Leadership Summit allows BGS members to advance their leadership development while building relationships with fellow leaders from BGS chapters around the world. During the Summit, students participate in a carefully cultivated series of leadership sessions designed to build upon each other to culminate in an intensive team competition. This year’s Summit took place November 2-5 in Orlando, FL.

The Team Case Competition allowed 35 teams of business students to collaborate and provide a solution to a complex business scenario. Each of the teams presented to a panel of judges and the five category winning teams showcased their business solutions to the full group of Summit attendees.

The case competition judges consisted of business and community leaders, BGS’ leadership team, BGS Board Members, and Deans from AACSB accredited business programs. Their presentations were evaluated against established criteria, including evidence of preparation, content, consideration for innovation, delivery, and discussion. Each presentation ended with a question and answer session with the judges.
