November 26, 2013

TORONTO, ON – A team of stu­dents from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Toronto’s Rot­man School of Management’s Full Time MBA pro­gram have won A.T. Kearney’s Glob­al Prize 2013, an annu­al strate­gic case com­pe­ti­tion, by defeat­ing a team from Lon­don Busi­ness School.

The team con­sist­ing of Alex Fitzger­ald, Michael Fitzger­ald, Michael McVety and Steven Zhao, all stu­dents in the first year of the Rot­man Full Time MBA pro­gram had ear­li­er defeat­ed five teams from North Amer­i­ca to advance to the final.

In the Glob­al Prize com­pe­ti­tion teams tack­le a case, based on an actu­al A.T. Kear­ney client engage­ment. Through­out the com­pe­ti­tion, teams had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to inter­act with A.T. Kear­ney con­sul­tants as they act as the client in sim­u­la­tions, pro­vide feed­back on the team’s efforts and share their insights on con­sult­ing.

“We are so pleased with the result of the com­pe­ti­tion and all that we have learned through the process. As we look to what’s next, we are excit­ed to take our insights from this expe­ri­ence, paired with all the con­tent we are learn­ing in class and put it to use dur­ing our sum­mer intern­ships,” say the team mem­bers, who won cash prizes at each stage of the com­pe­ti­tion and the chance to work for A.T. Kear­ney next sum­mer.
