This is Babson’s highest finish in the competition, having previously placed third in 2018. The competition is held annually and includes undergraduate and graduate teams from business schools throughout North America. The Babson team, for its second-place finish, received $3,000 (Canadian) to share among the four of them.

This event is the premier case competition focused on small-cap investment. It provides business students with an opportunity to showcase their ability to analyze financial business cases, develop strategic recommendations, and apply the academic skills they have gained in the classroom while networking with other business students and professionals in the finance industry. More than 25 teams submitted qualifying cases in January, and the final nine teams competed in the event finals.
