Maine Business School Students Take Top Awards in International Business Competition

University of Maine students won two awards at the 2019 International Collegiate Business Strategy Competition in California.

A team of six students placed first in Written Documents and second in Overall Performance in one of five “worlds,” a yearlong simulation in which the team manages a company for 20 quarters. Team participants were Eduardo Anzurez, Alison Berube, Thomas Giggey, Casco Haley, Megan Howes, and Samuel Varga.

Matt Skaves ’04, ’05G, lecturer in finance and accounting; Jason Harkins, associate professor of entrepreneurship; and John Mahon, professor of management and John M. Murphy Chair of International Business Policy and Strategy, advised the group.

“It’s the first time UMaine has come away with two awards in this competition,” Skaves said, “and it’s the highest we’ve placed in overall performance.”
