Rice Case Competition team wins 3rd place
October 30, 2008-The Rice Case Competition team won third place at the 2008 NAWMBA Conference, held on October 23-25 in Stamford, CT. The case was to create a strategic marketing plan within the NAWMBA budget to gain 200 sponsoring companies and 5,000 attendees at the 2009 NAWMBA Conference and Career Fair. Cynthia Hu, Carolyn Krumme, Maite Uribe, Manny Vedi, and Tony Yiu proposed an integrated short term and long term proposal to execute this goal, in accordance with building NAWMBA's brand image, while preserving the mission of the organization.
The team worked late into the night prior to the day of presentation, having been notified of a last-minute piece of information that was critical to their case. On the day of the presentation, CMC staff, and communication faculty and students attended to show their support for the Rice team.
