Illinois Ag Connection - 12/06/2017

Southern Illinois University Edwardsville Adam Midden, a senior in the School of Business, and fellow team members won their case category during the Team Case Competition, sponsored by KPMG, at Beta Gamma Sigma's (BGS) 2017 Global Leadership Summit.

The Team Case Competition allowed 35 teams of business students to collaborate and provide a solution to a complex business scenario. Midden's team won based on their innovative and creative solution for their assigned business case, as well as the effectiveness of their presentation.

BGS's annual Global Leadership Summit allows members to advance their leadership development, while building relationships with fellow leaders from around the world.

During the Summit, held in Orlando, students participated in a carefully cultivated series of leadership sessions designed to build upon each other to culminate in an intensive team competition.

Competition judges consisted of business and community leaders, BGS' leadership team, BGS board members, and deans from AACSB accredited business programs. Team presentations were evaluated based on evidence of preparation, content, consideration for innovation, delivery and discussion. Each presentation ended with a question and answer session with the judges. Then the winning teams displayed their business solutions to the full group of Summit attendees.
