December 2, 2008

A team of three Bentley graduate students placed third in the fist-ever International Case Competition on Strategic Value of IT Management, hosted by the CA World 2008 conference in Las Vegas on November 24. Bentley winners Chris Chesebro MBA '09, Henry Cipriano MSIT '09, and Kristin Wicks MBA '09 each received a $2,500 stipend. MSIT Director William Schinao served as faculty adviser.

Sponsored by Computer Associates Inc., together with the Association for Information Systems (AIS), and the School of Business Administration at Oakland University, the competition brought together students from leading Master of Business Administration and Master of Information Systems programs from around the world. The teams competing with Bentley were from Carnegie Mellon, George Washington University, University of British Columbia, University of Arizona, Michigan/Stanford, National University of Singapore, Helsinki School of Economics, Indiana University, and Monterrey Institute of Technology.

Prior to arriving to the competition, the student teams were provided with a case study of an organization that is in the throes of innovation and change, and charged with evaluating its challenges and risks and providing recommendations on how to measure risks and returns on IT initiatives to help ensure success. The case study was the HHS-Connect project belonging to the City of New York.
