The second annual MBA case competition, sponsored by Ocean Spray and the Boston NSHMBA Chapter, gathered MBA students from top colleges in the Northeastern United States to devise an entry strategy for one of Ocean Spray's product lines in the Latin American market. The top three teams selected from all participants will have the opportunity to win up to $10,000 in prize money. Two MBA teams from Hult International Business School, along with one team from Simmons College in Boston, were invited to present their proposals to senior executives of Ocean Spray on November 12, 2010. The winning team will be announced at the 2010 Gala and Award Ceremony in Boston, Massachusetts on December 3, 2010. Sponsors include EMC2, the Dana-Farber Cancer Foundation, Webtilia Creative Solutions, Putnam Investments, and Ocean Spray. The Gala Ceremony features a key note address by Charles Patrick Garcia, the Senior Managing Director of Garcia and Company Merchant Banking LLC. Mr. Garcia also serves as a board member for Winn-Dixie Stores and Aetna.
