Harbert College of Business graduate students earned a third place finish and $3,000 award in the 2017 SEC MBA Case Competition held at the University of Florida’s Warrington College of Business April 6-8.

Top honors in the SEC competition went to the University of Georgia, with the University of Florida finishing second. Rounding out the top four was the University of South Carolina. This is the fifth year for the SEC MBA Case Competition, which provides an opportunity for SEC business schools to showcase their students’ skills at solving simulated, real-world problems that cover the spectrum of business disciplines. Representing Auburn University were Daniel Robinson, of Cullman; Taryn McLaughlin, of Madison, Mississippi; Cassie Chen, of China; and Holger Norregaard, of Middleton, Wisconsin. Robinson also won the Best Presenter Award for his division.

In the competition, each team of four MBA students was presented a case on business growth strategy by competition supporter Nationwide, an insurance and financial services company out of Columbus, Ohio. Teams had approximately 24 hours to prepare a solution and presentation for review by a panel of judges in divisional rounds. The top four teams moved to the final round.
