IMA Student Case Competition 2022 Announces Global Winners
Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Indore from India emerged as the Winner in the competition
The IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) Student Case Competition (SCC) came to close following months of intense competition in a global final that saw regional winning teams from Europe, India, Asia Pac, and the Middle East competing at the finals hosted in Dubai this week. Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Indore and Suliman S. Olayan School of Business (American University of Beirut) emerged as winners in India and the Middle East competition respectively, where Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Indore was also the winning team in the global grand finals, behind the first-place winners – Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore.
The IMA Student Case Competition 2022 has seen dozens of teams from Europe,
Asia AsiaPac, Middle East, and India excelling over their peers in regional championships that included more than 1300 downloads, and 105 entries from 75 universities. After earning their spot in the grand finals, winning teams from around the world earned an all-expenses-paid trip to Dubai where they went head-to-head to land the global title.
Hanadi Khalife, senior director of MEA & India operations at IMA said, “I congratulate all the students who participated in IMA’s Student Case Competition 2022 this year. We had a record number of students and universities vie for the title this year and are particularly proud to see the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Indore team emerge as the winners of this year’s competition. The winning teams demonstrated outstanding abilities, which made selecting the top winner a major challenge for the judges. We are happy to see this competition growing and becoming tougher each year; this marks an essential part of our commitment to helping prepare young students for the future by giving them the opportunity to build their strategic mindset by analyzing real business challenges faced by enterprises. IMA remains dedicated to presenting such opportunities to finance and accounting students and challenging them to put their analytical thinking to the test so they may better support the organizations they work with when the time comes.”
As part of the competition, participating teams of three to five members were challenged to demonstrate their analytical skills, strategic foresight, and creativity in formulating their cases and in turn, presenting their work to a panel of management accounting experts.
The regional winning team from Europe, “Smart Girls” from University of Economics in Katowice said, “Participating in IMA’s Student Case Competition gave us the opportunity to brainstorm, collaborate, and challenge ourselves as a team. The result was rewarding, not only when we won, but also because we created something that was different and innovative.”
Over the years, IMA has seen thousands of students from some of the top universities around the world further affirming a growing appetite amongst young aspiring future professionals looking to showcase their capabilities by taking on big business problems. For its 11th year, IMA invited eligible students from the region to solve a business case titled: “Maximizing Customer Value at the Cage.” The business case involved helping a company named The Cage, a small to medium-size business operating a futsal facility, on how to maximize the value provided to its customers by innovatively interpreting, analysing, evaluating, synthesizing, and communicating a solution.
The Indian chapter of IMA Student Case Competition 2022 was supported by EduPristine, Miles Education and EXL which came on board as platinum sponsors along with Chanakya Business School, VG Learning Destination and Knowcraft Analytics as gold sponsors.
Innovative Ideas and Breakthroughs from NMIMS MPSTME Civil Engineering
The department has published two patents, research papers at international conferences
The Civil Engineering department of NMIMS MPSTME has been making significant strides in the field of disaster management, flood resilience, and sustainable infrastructure. The department has published two patents, research papers at international conferences, and completed several student-led projects on topics such as renewable energy, groundwater modelling, and self-healing concrete.
The first patent, ‘Automated Flood Water Regulating Multipurpose System,’ proposes a novel approach to flood resilience by constructing multipurpose wells on the banks of rivers to discharge excess water and generate hydropower. The second patent, ‘Aqua Barrier,’ is an automated mechanism that can protect any flood-prone area, regardless of its size, from any disasters caused due to water.
The student-led projects are equally impressive, with topics ranging from low-volume rural concrete roads to oscillating tidal wave energy converters. These projects showcase the department’s focus on sustainable infrastructure, renewable energy, and innovative design.
The faculty at NMIMS MPSTME Civil Engineering department, led by Head, Dr. Meenal Mategaonkar and Research coordinator, Dr. Jigisha Vashi, played a vital role in guiding and mentoring students toward research excellence. Their expertise and guidance have enabled students to participate and win awards in prestigious competitions such as the CDRI’s ‘Imagining Disaster Resilient Structures’ and The University of Queensland’s ‘Engineering Design Challenge, and AAKAR at IIT Bombay.’
The department’s success is further evidenced by the achievements of its students in national and international conferences. Students presented their research papers in Scopus Indexed papers and conferences such as the 9th Indian Young Geotechnical Engineering Conference and the Eighth Indian Young Geotechnical Conference.
Dr. Meenal Mategaonkar, Head of the Civil Engineering Department, MPSTME, NMIMS, said, “The achievements of the NMIMS MPSTME Civil Engineering department demonstrate its commitment to developing innovative solutions for complex problems in the field of civil engineering. The department’s focus on sustainable infrastructure, disaster resilience, and renewable energy is essential for addressing the challenges faced by society today. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of both students and faculty and their commitment to excellence.”
