MBA students will also be pitching business ideas for inclusive products and services. Tackling accessibility limitations, teams will present their unique designs and product plans to disrupt familiar consumer products. Please note that registration has closed for the case competition portion of this event.
MBA candidate Aleksei Rogatinksii participated in the event last year. “It was a great opportunity to contribute to the community,” he recalls. “Our ideas were heard by business practitioners and I hope will be implemented in the future. It was also a chance to network and chat with these practitioners, as well as with students from other MBA programs.”
In the business pitch competition. Aleksei and his team had the opportunity to develop and pitch an accessibility solution of their own. They tackled educational difficulties faced by students diagnosed with ADHD, proposing an IT application that summarizes lengthy texts to convey key ideas in a short form.
“It was a marvelous experience,” says Aleksei. “I learned about disruptive technological trends, which are now applied in a variety of market verticals, made valuable connections, and (last but not the least) won 2nd place! I look forward to participating in this challenge again on the 5th of February and invite everyone to join in and support my team!”
