Congratulations to a team of four CBA students—Ted Balog, John Haladyna, Jonathan McPherson, and Tommy Wardyniec—who took second place in a projects category and third overall among 12 teams that competed in the 2015 Annual Information Systems Project and Case Competition held at Ball State University. The group’s faculty advisor was Professor of Management Liping Liu, Ph.D.
The competition had three primary categories: project, case study, and presentation. The projects portion was work that students completed during their school year. The case was completed on-site, in which students were given one evening to analyze it and prepare their materials. Both the projects work and cases were presented to a group of six Information Technology executives, who judged the students’ performance. The overall ranking was based on performance in all three categories.
Teams that participated in this year's event were from Ball State University, Marietta College, Millikin University, Purdue University, the University of Southern Indiana, and the University of Toledo.
