In Fall 2012, Carlow University’s MBA students, along with at least six other MBA programs, including Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Pittsburgh, Chatham University, and Duquesne University, participated in the “Passion + Profit Slam” Competition of Idea Foundry. The competition required that graduate students identify a real-world problem related to the food sector, investigate barriers to growth that result from the identified problem, and create market-based solutions to address them. The students proposed a fiscally sustainable, socially responsible, environmentally sound way to solve the particular problem.
Two student teams, Tea Blessing (Kristi Latorre, Carly Pasquini, Alexa Saracco, Alyssa Bridge, Kayleen Garlicki, Nicholas Onufer) and Farm Food Truck (Scott Henzler,Michelle Lagree, Meredith Neel, Vicki Rostis, Lea Steadman, joint group with Chatham University students) from Carlow University School of Management’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) program won $ 500 second place prizes in the Passion and Profit Slam competition. The project was a part of the Strategic Planning Course offered by the Carlow University’s MBA program under the guidance of our awesome instructor Peggy McGarry.
Please join us in congratulating this incredible accomplishment by our MBA students!
