Bentley College Wins Second Annual Boston Business School Beanpot

February 25, 1998


WALTHAM, Mass.- A team of five Bentley College students took first place in the second annual B-School Beanpot in Boston on Saturday, February 21. Bentley topped a field of six schools that included second-place finisher Babson College, third-place Northeastern University, fourth-place MIT, Boston College and Boston University. Bentley's winning team was comprised of seniors Dan Bongiolatti, Sonya Brook, O'Malley Hayes, Scott Moss and junior Rob Walker.

Hosted by the Boston University School of Management Student Government, the day-long Beanpot challenged business students to analyze a previously unpublished business case. In the preliminary round, each team prepared a written analysis about the Mendocino (Calif.) Brewing Company and its efforts to finance its own growth through the public issuance of stock. Bentley, MIT, Babson and Northeastern advanced to the final round and presented their analyses to a panel of judges recruited from the John Hancock Mortgage and Real Estate division, CSC Consulting, Price Waterhouse, Teradyne, Ernst & Young, Cambridge Technology Partners, The Wall Street Journal, Reebok, Pizzeria Uno, General Electric Plastics and Streamline, Inc.

Bentley sent two teams of five students each to the competition, both coached by management professors John Seeger and Lou Chin. Bentley's other team consisted of seniors Rob Adinolfi, Chris Davis, Jason Dubeshter, Aric Ng and Felicia Tamulevich.
