School of Business Administration Team Finishes Second at SMC Ethics Competition

The UVM team

A team of University of Vermont School of Business Administration students finished second at the annual St. Michael’s College Ethics Case Competition last month.

The team, comprised of Kelby Benson, Ben Jacobson, Alexis Reed and Brendan Stripling, presented their cases on February 26, 2013 at St. Michael’s College in Colchester. 

"This experience challenged my moral reasoning, provided a wonderful networking opportunity and in the endm raised my awareness of the importance of corporate social responsibility," said Alexis Reed, a senior at the School of Business Administration.  "Others should get involved in these types of competitions because it will give them a chance to collaboratively analyze a case with their peers and address its key issues, present, and respond to questions posed by a panel of judges.  They probably won't get an experience like this in a class room, it's an invaluable learning opportunity."

UVM finished second, behind SUNY Plattsburgh.  Champlain College, St. Michael’s College and New England College also participated in the event.
