Olin first-year MBA student Ony Mgbeahurike was a member of the winning team in the PepsiCo MBA Invitational Business Case Competition at Texas Christian University earlier this month. Ony’s team competed against students from 14 business schools, including Columbia, Wharton (University of Pennsylvania), and Owen (Vanderbilt University), among others.
The First Place team took home $7,000 for their efforts.

The MBA students were assigned to eight mixed teams, each team member from a different school. The teams received the case from PepsiCo Saturday morning and presented their solutions to PepsiCo executives that afternoon. Winning teams were announced at an awards dinner that evening.
