Kudos to MBAs Ben Mathew, Mansi Shah, and Michael Donahoe and MAC student Alyssa Jaklitsch for winning the Association for Corporate Growth Private Equity/M&A case competition. The team beat three teams -- Duke, UNC, and Wake Forest -- with investment banking experience to take the top spot. Last year's team took 2nd place; aced out by exec MBAs from Wake. The team will be recognized at an ACG meeting in April in front of over 50 private equity and investment banks.
Kudos as well to Professor Ken Marks, who helped prepare the team. This is the type of recognition that helps put NC State's MBA on the map.
