A team of five of the School’s MBA students took second place honors in the final round of a national health care case competition that pitted some of the nation’s top business schools against one another. The 7th Annual Goizueta Healthcare Forum, hosted by Emory University’s Goizueta Business School in Atlanta this month, included teams from Emory, the University of Chicago, the University of Texas at Austin, Ohio State University, Vanderbilt University, Texas Christian University, and the University of Houston.

The competition, which consisted of two rounds, focused on potential issues faced by a hospital’s chief operating officer. The UM team beat Ohio State in the first round to advance to the final round where they faced Emory, Vanderbilt and Texas Christian. The final included a 20 minute presentation and five to ten minutes of questions before a full auditorium. Emory took first place with Vanderbilt finishing third and Texas Christian in fourth.

"This was a great opportunity to take what we have learned in the classroom and apply it to a potential real life situation in front of industry professionals,” said UM team member Geoff Todd.

The UM team, the first from the School to compete in this competition, also included Rohit Kapai, Darryl Doonie, Nikunj Desai, and Marian Johnson.
