Warwick third in Russell Group case competition
01 April 2014
Warwick Business School hosted the Warwick Inter-University Consulting Case Competition (WIUCC) on 15 February which was organised by The Warwick Consulting Society (WCS).
The competition attracted the participation of the best undergraduate and graduate school students from ten prominent Russell Group universities and Business Schools.
The aim of the competition was to connect outstanding talent with top consultancies and provide a national platform for students to hone their consulting skills.
Each participating university sent a team of four students to analyse a set of complex case studies over two rounds. All teams had the opportunity to present their findings in front of a panel of judges made up of consultants from Accenture, Deloitte and PwC. The teams were subsequently invited to attend a networking gala which gave the participants a chance to relax, network and receive feedback from the consultants judging the competition.
The University of Cambridge emerged as overall champions, with first runners-up going to The University of Manchester, whilst University College London and the University of Warwick received joint third place respectively.
The Warwick team comprised:
- Moray Busch, MSc Management
- Chris Daoulas, MSc Finance and Economics
- Joseph Mogaji, MSc Management
- Alexandru Tamas, 1st year Philosophy, Politics and Economics
The winners of the competition received £600 in prize money as well as 20-week premium membership from PrepLounge (a case interview preparation platform). The first runners-up received £300 in prize money as well as an eight week premium membership from PrepLounge, whilst both second runners-up received a four week premium membership.
With the University of Cambridge already confirmed to host next year’s event, the WIUCC has set the foundation which promises a vast platform bustling with creative students and globally-renowned employers, each primed to make a huge impact on the consulting industry for years to come.
The WIUCC was spearheaded by Vincent Looi and Elwinder Singh, President and Vice President of WCS respectively. They would like to congratulate the Warwick team on their fantastic achievement as well as thanking the WIUCC’s main sponsors – Warwick Business School and PrepLounge, and all judges and participants that were in attendance.
