COBI students on UT team for case competition in Dubai

Two COBI students will be on a team of University of Toledo honor students selected to compete in the HULT Prize regional finals in Dubai in March.

Honors business major Abigail Dudek, a sophomore, and Nehemiah Scott, a COBI alum now working on his doctoral degree, will represent UT in Dubai, one of five cities hosting regional finals this spring.

The HULT Prize is the world's largest student case competition in which students compete for a $1 million startup prize.  Also competing in Dubai will be teams representing Cambridge, Johns Hopkins, Northwestern, the London School of Economics and other fine institutions. The global finals will be held in New York City during the Clinton Global Initiative in September.

This year's challenge is to develop a social enterprise that addresses early childhood education disparities experienced by children living in urban slums.
