Undergraduate Business Council

On February 8th, students from the business school participated in the annual McCombs Executive Summit. The summit was attended by over 75 students and centered on Human Capital in the Modern Age. The event consisted of a Q&A panel discussion with company representatives from Hitachi Consulting, GE Capital, Catapult Systems, Mercer, Booz & Co., and Accenture. After the discussion panel, the students got to ask their own questions from the industry leading professionals. The event then broke out into separate sessions where the participants worked on a case competition alongside the executives. Students worked in groups and prepared an answer to the problem outlined in the case. After, students then presented their answers in front of two professors who graded them and assessed their presentation. The event was then followed by a Keynote address from Sense Corp’s Tony Daws. Tony provided insight to his own experience in consulting and the importance of maintaining human capital in the modern age.  Thank you to all the support that we received from our sponsors for helping us put on a fantastic event.
