Second Place McGill Management International Case Competition 2015 (Thammasat Team), McGill University

Written By Sirirat Tansaengwilai, BBA#20
During 15th-21st March 2015, McGill Management International Case Competition (MMICC) was held in Montreal, Canada. Thammasat University is one of 11 participating teams in this competition. The team composed of Sirirat Tansaengwilai, Chavisa Ruangsiri, Sirada Sangthongsuk (BBA#20) and Raviphon Anadwal (BBA #22). In addition, Poonsak Sinthawat (BBA#20) also participated in international team that composed of members from finalist universities in previous years.
This competition, as usual, was divided into 2 parts; the social activities and the case competition. During the first 4 days, we have got a chance to travel around Montreal; Hike up on Mount Royal to see nice view of Montreal city, Experience snow activities by snow tubing, and try the traditional Canadian food with different type of maple syrups, etc. This is both enjoyable and knowledgeable to us. Not only about the activities, committees of this competition are the friendliest crew that makes everything even more fun. Therefore, the ice-breaking activities makes us not only know participants, but also get close to the committees.

For the rest of 3 days, the real case competition starts. The case this year was different from the other year in the sense that MMICC start writing their own case. And therefore, they have added a new session of company presentation before we start cracking the case. The case company this year was “McKesson Canada”; specifically Hospital Automated Solution (HAS) department. The objective of case company is the growth opportunity by leveraging on this department. We were given 32 hours in cracking the case; followed by 2 hours in preparing for a presentation.  The presentation in this competition is in a different format from other competition; there are 2 rounds of presentation to 2 panel of judges. Therefore, every judge gets to see every team’s presentation. After that, the result of placing comes during the closing ceremonies. And Thammasat team got the second place; while international team that has one Thammasat team member  comes the first.
This competition, to me, is one of the best competition in both social aspect and the case. Thanks to our case team advisors, the faculty and Thammasat university that supported us and make this memorable experience happened.
