Written by Attasith Tienwuttinun, BBA#18
During March 17th – March 23rd 2013, the Thammasat University BBA Program has sent a team of students consisting of Attasith, Nichapat, Panisara and Vibhu to Montreal, Canada to compete in Mcgill Management International Case Competition hosted by Mcgill University. Competed against 11 other teams from over the world; Thammasat University was placed 3rd after Wharton School of Business - University of Pennsylvania and Belgrade University.
The week began with many social activities that the committee has provided for participants to get to know each other. The activities include scavenger hunt around Montreal city and the famous snow tubing down the steep hills at Mont- Avila.

After enjoying all the activities with all participants and committee our team was ready for the 32-uninterupted hours of case cracking period. This year the case was about an SME called ‘Greenlite Lighting Corporation” that is looking to expand. However, with limited capability, the opportunities have to be carefully selected and prioritized. Our team came up with analysis and recommendation that pinpoint and prioritize the steps that the company should take. We gave presentation twice on the presentation day to 2 panels of judges who oversee all the presentation in the competition.
All of us have enjoyed all of the experiences that this competition has to offer, and has developed ourselves personally and as a team. Lastly we would like to express our gratitude to our coach Arjarn James Fitzpatrick for his time and dedication to our team. All 4 of us, and the entire case team in the past 16 years could not be here without his support.
