Excel Case Conference during COVID-19
Despite the limitations of COVID-19, BUFMC was still able to hold a successful case conference this past fall semester. On the platform Remo, we created a simulated virtual conference room. Students were able to collaborate and compete for prizes by creating modules to solve real world cases. Our conference ended with keynote speakers and panels with industry professionals, such as Boston Consulting Group, Deloitte, Bank of Montreal, and TJX Companies.
