A team of students at UNC-CH’s Kenan-Flagler Business School took home the top prize in the Boston University School of Management International Tech Strategy Business Case competion.

A group from Duke’s Fuqua Business School finished third.

Sixteen teams from around the world competed in the event, which ended Saturday.

The Kenan-Flagler group prevailed in the Networked Society themed event with their plan for their “Education Technology Platform.”

Team members were Jae Lee, RohanVaidyanathan, Christophe Renaud, and MaciejDudek.

A team from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology finished second followed by Duke.

“Ericsson believes that the Networked Society is not just about connecting devices, it’s about the power that is unleashed when everything is connected,” said Helena Norrman, head of communications for Ericsson, which sponsored the event.

“At the core of this transformation is education, which can now be offered to people everywhere, regardless of social or geographical boundaries,” she added. “The development of human potential within society as well as inside enterprises will change the world for the better. It was fantastic to take part in the thoughts, insights and ideas on the topic that the students brought into the final round.”
