6/12/2015 - For the second straight year, a Kellogg team won the Wharton MBA Buyout Case Competition.

Michael Jiwani ’15, Joe Long ’15, Justin Marku ’15 and Evan Cooney ’16 came in first place in the February contest that asked MBA students to make recommendations for a proposed private equity buyout for a major retailer, and earned $3,000.

“We knew a win would be difficult to repeat; however, our team never doubted our approach or ability to get the job done,” says Jiwani. “We were excited to have represented our fellow students at Kellogg and our private equity alumni base in such a positive light.”
