PROVIDENCE, RI – NOVEMBER 22, 2011
TribalVision founder and CEO Chris Ciunci participated this past weekend in the CIBER Case Challenge located at the University of Connecticut Campus in Storrs, Connecticut. Hosted by the University of Connecticut’s Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER), the eight annual Case Challenge featured sixty undergraduate business students from fifteen universities across the country and around the globe. Divided into teams of four, the Case Challenge presented students with an exceptional opportunity to network and collaborate with peers from different universities as well as to gain exposure to new business specialties including finance, operations, management and marketing. Each team of students was given 24 hours to develop a strategy to extend American Express’ operations internationally before presenting their business case and solution to a panel of judges.
As a judge, Chris was able to interact with students and provide feedback to the young entrepreneurs. Commenting on his experience, Chris said, “I was very impressed with all of the teams participating in this event and feel privileged to have been selected as a judge. The students’ level of preparedness and their unique, creative solutions for international business problems were thought-provoking and sophisticated, especially given the limited time frame of the challenge.”
In Europe as well as in Providence, RI, TribalVision works with its clients to help them market more effectively and efficiently in today’s broad and rapidly changing marketing communications environment. At the CIBER Case Challenge, Ciunci was able to impart his experience with marketing strategies and global competitiveness in the context of international business research and education. He was delighted to award first place to the “Luminary Consultants” team as well the Best Presenter award to Stephanie Bedard from the University of South Carolina, and the Best Q&A award to Ahmed Khairat from the American University of Cairo.
