Johns Hopkins Team Wins 2019 Kellogg Biotech + Healthcare Case CompetitionOn January 26, eleven teams of graduate students gathered in Evanston for the final round of the Kellogg Biotech + Healthcare Case Competition, sponsored by Astellas. At the end of the day, a team from Johns Hopkins Carey Business School took home the top prize and a check for $5,000.
This year the competition was particularly intense. Sixty teams applied for the event, and eleven were invited to the final round.
Each year, the case competition focuses on a different healthcare related topic. This year’s question addressed a timely issue: how should the pharmaceutical industry improve its reputation? Not long ago, pharmaceutical firms were widely respected and admired. Today, the situation is very different; many people have very negative perceptions of the industry. Teams considered whether these negative perceptions were a problem and provided ideas on what to do. Industry association PhRMA participated in the event and the ideas generated for the competition will perhaps be used in the coming months.
The winning team from Johns Hopkins had intriguing recommendations and presented the ideas in a credible, logical fashion. Congratulations go to Jessica Joseph, Taylor Cottle, Elizabeth Phelan and Jenna Fritz.
A team from University of Texas McCombs School of Business did a stylish presentation and finished second. Congratulations go to Emma Blumstein, Gaurav Singh, Sabah Akbani, Taylor Dilbeck and Anish Patel.
Third place went to a team from Kellogg, and the judges awarded honorable mention to a team from UCLA Anderson.
Teams from ten different schools took part in the event: Harvard, Texas McCombs, CEIBS, Kellogg, SDA Bocconi, UCLA Anderson, Johns Hopkins Carey, Chicago Booth, UCLA Anderson and Berkeley Haas.
