Kelley sweeps top spots in annual competition with Purdue

1st Place: Chris Allen, Di (Esther) Chen, Haley Wolf and Augustin Ruta of Kelley Bloomington

2nd Place: Matt Whitesel, Justin Tran, Kristyn
Crawford and Jay Trewn of Kelley Bloomington 

The Kelley School of Business earned a year's worth of bragging rights when it claimed 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in the 14th annual Kelley-Krannert Case Challenge with intrastate rival Purdue.

Kelley and the Krannert School of Management at Purdue send four teams each to the competition, which alternates sites. Based on enrollment, three of Kelley's teams come from IU-Bloomington and the fourth comes from the Kelley Indianapolis campus at IUPUI. This year, the competition was hosted at Bloomington.

The teams examined a Harvard Business School case concerning the LEGO toy company.

3rd Place: Jon Nix, Jim Plew and Ajay Bohra of
Kelley Indy
Kelley teams from the IU-Bloomington campus earned 1st and 2nd places, while the team from Kelley Indy took 3rd place.

Kelley would like to thank our judges: Martha Blood, director of corporate partnerships for the Association of College Unions International and COO of ACUI Procure; Donna Snyder (Kelley-BS'86), vice president and CFO of Hoosier Energy; Fernando Cadena (Kelley-BS'07), associate engagement manager with Elwood Staffing Services; John Rose (IU-MS'78), president and co-owner of Textillery Weavers; Bill Metzger (Kelley-BS'73, MBA'77), national sales manager with ACME Manufacturing; and Karthik Krishnan (Kelley-MBA'10), supply chain planning and purchasing team management with Carlisle Brake & Friction.
