AUBURN HILLS, Mich., September 25, 2020 /3BL Media/ - Talented MBA candidates from 36 of the nation’s leading business schools competed for $50,000 in scholarships in the 2020 National Black MBA Association (NBMBAA) Graduate Student Case Competition®, sponsored by FCA.
The NBMBAA/FCA Graduate Student Case Competition is an annual event that gives high-potential graduate students an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and problem-solving skills in a formal competition.
The competition is held each year as part of the NBMBAA’s annual conference and career fair. This year, the conference and career fair went virtual, September 23-25, with winning teams announced on Wednesday, September 23.
"FCA is proud to continue its several decades-long support of the National Black MBA Association and the Graduate Student Case Competition," said Lottie Holland, Director, Diversity, Inclusion, Engagement & Talent Acquisition, FCA – North America. "The competition is a showcase event for diversity, leadership and student achievement that enables our company to demonstrate our commitment to identifying, recruiting and developing diverse talent and future business leaders."
FCA has been the exclusive sponsor of the Graduate Student Case Competition since 1995. Over that time, more than 2,600 graduate students have participated in the competition.
During the competition, teams are given a business case from which they develop business solutions. Each student team then prepares and presents its case to a panel of experienced business executives. Teams are judged on their analysis of the cast, the feasibility of their recommendations and the quality of their presentations.
The 2020 NBMBAA Business Case was entitled “The Evolution: The Ideal Digital Retailing Experience.” The teams assumed the role of an independent consultant firm advising a fictional automotive client on how best to use dealer digital retailing solutions in accordance with state franchise laws.
An important way FCA pursues its long-standing commitment to diversity is by supporting many diversity-serving organizations around North America, particularly in the company’s pursuit of diverse talent, which is a key ingredient in fueling its innovation.
