Hitotsubashi ICS participated in the Integrated Leadership Case Competition hosted by Yale University's School of Management (SOM)
On April 7-9, four students from Class of 2016 participated in this year's Integrated Leadership Case Competition hosted by Yale University's School of Management (SOM) in New Haven USA.
The ICS team was represented by Afiq Nasir from Malaysia, Erdembileg Tsedev from Mongolia, Ken Lee from Taiwan, and Leda Cecilia Samin from Philippines. Competing teams were given the raw case on the day of the competition. Within 7 hours, they had to formulate a proposal and presented it to a judge panel, representing Yale faculty, sponsors, and corporate leaders.
The Yale Integrated Leadership Case Competition was created to convene the best students from participating universities in developing creative solutions for business challenges that require the integration of multiple disciplines. Based on Yale SOM's integrated curriculum and comprehensive leadership development program, competing students are encouraged to take into account different vantage points (finance, marketing, ethics, etc.) and multiple stakeholders (customers, investors, employees, etc) when formulating their strategy for resolving multi-faceted and complex problems.1
All of this year's 12 teams came from the Global Network for Advanced Management and represented ten different countries. All teams were drawn into three separate pools; A, B and C. ICS was assigned to Pool C with National University of Singapore (Singapore), Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (India) and Fudan University (China). For pool C, the ICS team was mentioned as a runner up, with National University of Singapore as the pool winner. As for the final round, the team from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Hong Kong) was declared the winner, with National University of Singapore and INCAE (Costa Rica) finishing second and third, respectively.
Other participating teams are from Asian Institute of Management (Philippines), Lagos Business School (Nigeria), UCD Michael Smurfit (Ireland), Renmin University (China), University of Cape Town (South Africa) and Yale SOM.
