A team of Boston University School of Management MBA students swept the finals in the National Association of Asian MBAs (NAAMBA) Global Case Competition on September 9, 2011, in New York.

Congratulations to team leader Roman Sverdlov (MBA ’12) and his colleagues Sabrina Grijalva Wells (MBA ’12), and Sidharth Ramsinghaney (MBA ’12), who competed against finalists from Purdue, Syracuse University, and the University of Southern California. Each group presented a marketing plan to position Singapore as an ideal career destination to young Asian professionals in the US.

The winning Boston University team will receive a trip to Singapore to examine the dynamics of doing business in Asia through networking opportunities with senior management at multinational companies.

NAAMBA is a leading non-profit professional organization dedicated to cultivating global Asian leaders.  According to Jino Ahn, founder and president of NAAMBA, “The Global MBA Case Competition is an opportunity for NAAMBA members to exhibit and refine their business skills under pressure, which will help them tremendously as they pursue career opportunities.”

Tze Min Lim, Area Director at the competition’s sponsor, Contact Singapore, added, “Asia has become a hub for business and finance, and Singapore is at the epicenter with more than 7,000 multinational companies. As businesses continue to expand into Asia, experience and knowledge of this region is invaluable. The Global MBA Case Competition gives students the chance to examine how they can best position themselves to seize career and business opportunities in Asia.”
