Teams participating in the case competition had 36 hours to utilize their business skills to analyze, research and develop a solution for a case about a realistic ethical dilemma. After developing a solution, teams created a professional presentation and written executive summary.

A panel of 12 business leaders and K-State faculty evaluated the presentations.

“It was truly a pleasure to see the Truman SIFE students perform at such a high level over the weekend,” ConocoPhillips representative Christopher Merriewether said. “I had not heard much about Truman State University prior to the event, but I saw very sharp students who did an amazing job representing their institution. The first place prize was well deserved!”

Other SIFE teams represented in the competition were University of Nebraska – Lincoln, University of Northern Colorado, Iowa State University and Texas State University – San Marcos.
