On May 16, 2014, a team of interdisciplinary students from Northwestern won the 1st place prize at the Advance Degree Consulting Alliance: Deloitte Case Competition.

“My team did our best to “think bravely” by drawing on our diverse backgrounds to address a pressing problem: the undersupply of Maker’s Mark bourbon. Our four-man team was truly interdisciplinary and represented over eight advanced degrees from three of Northwestern’s graduate schools: Kellogg School, Northwestern Law and Feinberg Medical School. Our team included myself, JD-MBA ’16, Kieren Patel, PhD, JD-MBA ’16, Michael Jung, MD-MBA ’15, and Rushi Talati, MD ’15. The photo shows the team in action at 3 am during the morning of the competition at Weiboldt hall. Thanks to Kellogg’s stellar technology infrastructure, we were able to operate as an integral team despite me being 2000 miles away in Los Angeles.”
