A team of five students of bachelor of business administration (financial investment analysis) from Delhi-based Shaheed Sukhdev College beat some of the world’s most prestigious schools to bag the first position at the annual Global Case Competition hosted online by Harvard University. Student Raghav Nath, Anand Negi, Kunal Vats, Sparsh Sehgal and Ojas Jhamb competed with the PhD level scholars from top business schools such as John Hopkins University and London Business School.
They prepared a 126-page pitchbook covering financial valuation, financial analysis and strategic analysis of a hypothetical merger and acquisition scenario for their hypothesis ‘Shall Amazon acquire Netflix’. The pitchbook was shortlisted for the top-10 entries and the students presented the case study through a video a few days ago. The presentation was followed by a question and answer session with the judges. The results were declared late on April 26 live on Facebook and these five were declared winners among the 140 teams that had participated from across the world.
The students will get a cash reward of USD 10,000. Amit Kumar, a faculty member from the school told ToI that this is the first time that an Indian institute has won this pretigious award. The students are a little disappointed that they will not be able to travel to the Harvard University to collect their prize and certificate due to travel restrictions but they are eagerly waiting to celebrate the victory in a big way once the lockdown is called off.
