A team of GWSB students — Adam Greenlaw, Ashley Kongs, Ross Lyell and Elizabeth Terry, all 2019 GMBAs — won “Honorable Mention” recognition in the 2019 Aspen Institute Business & Society International MBA Case Competition.
For the competition, the teams analyzed a brand-new case study, authored by the Yale School of Management about the Connecticut Green Bank. As the nation’s first green bank, the Connecticut Green Bank was formed to promote cleaner, less expensive and more reliable sources of energy while creating jobs and supporting local economic development. The Aspen Institute’s Competition tasked students with helping the Green Bank and Inclusive Prosperity Capital, a non-profit organization co-created by the Green Bank, by proposing a new program or an enhancement to an existing program that would position both organizations for financially sustainable growth.
Other top institutions participating in the case competition included the Booth School of Business, University of Chicago; Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University; Questrom School of Business, Boston University; Stephen M. Ross School of Business, University of Michigan; and Leonard N. Stern School of Business, New York University.
