LSU Team Reaches Final Four at SEC MBA Case Competition

April 13, 2015

BATON ROUGE – The team of Parker Cramer, Steven Goyne, Sayre Phinney and Faisal Qayyum reached the Final Four of the Southeastern Conference MBA Case Competition, ultimately finishing fourth behind the University of Florida, the University of Kentucky and the University of South Carolina.

The win was Florida’s third consecutive at the event, which took place at the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina. Teams of four MBA students from every SEC university presented on a business case centered on the sustainability of an African mining company. The teams were separated into four divisions and proposed their solutions to a panel of business executives. The top four proposals from each division moved on to the final round.

Individually, Phinney was given the Best Q&A Award for his division.

“We’re so proud of our students on making it to the SEC Case Competition finals,” said Dana Hart, director of the Flores MBA Program. “This is no easy task. Out of 14 SEC member institutions, our team placed fourth. We look forward to continuing to build a culture of competition and collaboration among our students. Indeed, our students are among the best.”
