Goodman Students Undefeated at Binational Case Competition. A team of four Goodman School of Business students placed first for the second consecutive year in the annual World Trade Center Buffalo Niagara International Case Competition held at Niagara University in Lewiston, New York on Friday, Feb. 28.
Third- and fourth-year Brock University Bachelor of Business Administration students competed together against five other undergraduate university teams from western New York and southern Ontario on a case involving a real-world international trade scenario provided by the American company Moog.
The team prepared a presentation on how Moog could expand their digital technology to improve both customer and employee collaboration. Real-world practice is one of several reasons Goodman students participate in case competitions.
“What I enjoy most is applying knowledge I learned in classes to real-world scenarios,” said one participant. “We receive immediate feedback from industry professionals, so we get to gauge if our thinking is on the right track. I haven’t worked in an office environment yet, so case competitions are my best way of getting exposure to the inner workings of a company.”
The annual World Trade Center Buffalo Niagara International Case Competition is only one of several case competitions Goodman students have recently experienced success. Earlier this year at the JDC Central competition, Goodman’s Accounting and Wild Card case teams placed first and the Digital Strategy team took home second. At the DECA U provincial championships, Goodman’s 60 students captured 24 medals in individual and case competitions.

Students of ESB Business School at Reutlingen University develop strategies for the future with Daimler AG.
What future dynamics do companies expect to see in an industry? How will competitors act and react? And how will customer preferences change? These questions can be typically answered in a strategic simulation. In the elective “strategic simulation” in the MBA International Management part-time programme, students simulated, under the guidance of Professor Dr Jan Oliver Schwarz, a question formulated by Mercedes-Benz AG. In the run-up, the students focused on the relevant market players, the market and possible future developments. Finally from Friday afternoon until Saturday afternoon, competitive dynamics in the future were simulated in three moves. At the end of the simulation the students had the opportunity to discuss their findings with Meliha Loeffler and Martin Eisold (ESB alumni).

DCU Unveils New Approach to Online Upskilling . Following on from the announcement of a global partnership with major online learning platform, FutureLearn, DCU has now launched a new online accredited short course on Fintech, with details on Fintech – Financial Innovation unveiled today.
The online course, which is offered by DCU as a microcredential (accredited, online certification in a specific topic area), was developed by DCU Business School. It considers how advances in information and communications technologies are transforming business operations and interactions with customers.
Fintech – Financial Innovation, which is led by Professor Mark Cummins and Dr. Pierangelo Rosati of DCU Business School, examines how key technologies, such as cloud computing, social media and artificial intelligence, are disrupting all aspects of the finance value chain and facilitating unprecedented levels of innovation in financial services.
The online course is aimed at professionals who wish to upskill and keep pace with the rapid development of financial technology, its adoption and application, particularly in the financial services industry. It is also suitable for those seeking to transition into Fintech-related roles as the sector expands. The availability of the course as an online microcredential not only offers time flexibility for those already in employment but also facilitates those who wish to take a small number of such units without necessarily registering for a full degree programme.
