Gaurav reports on the NUS MBA Team’s insights from participating in the John Molson Business Case Competition 2010 in Canada.
It all started with an email from the MBA Office inviting people to participate in the John Molson Business Case Competition. The students needed to submit an essay, their resumes and also solve a case which was judged by our distinguished professors.
About a month after the whole process started, the team was announced; Jaimin Shah, Hugo Rufino, Suveer Rajpal and of course, me. Then started the rush for flight tickets, visas etc. Hugo was chosen our team leader and he did a good job ensuring everything went well.

Our team emerged second in the CFA University Investment Research Competition (UIRC). Held on 12 December 2009 in Singapore, nine teams pitted their skills and knowledge against teams from five other schools.
“Opulen Investments”, our team, comprising Geetali, Jaimin, Kapil and Kirti, wrote an investment report and presented recommendations on Wilmar Internationl Ltd. We wrote a comprehensive equity research report on the company and then pitched the stock to the eminent judges from GIC, CIMB-GK, Apollo Capital, Booz Allen Hamilton and Business Times.

Jenny Costelloe, President of the Nanyang Business School-CSR Club shares her experience and key takeaways from the CSR Kaleidoscope Conference 2009.
I’ll be honest; I went to the Kaleidoscope 2009 event with mixed expectations: was this going to be yet another presentation on corporate “do-gooding” and donations, or would the NUS Social Impact Club be able to demonstrate a similar interpretation of CSR to my own (which I’ll explain later)? I’m pleased to say that from start to finish, the conference content was a careful balance of “the what, the how and the why” of CSR – and not a single mention of a big cheque!
