April 5, 2017 - King's College students, primarily sophomores, taking a "Principles of Management" class had the opportunity this semester to participate in the fourth annual Target Case Competition.
The College received a $1,500 grant from the retail giant to use as prize money for a competition involving teams of students who are given a case study from Target and have to design a solution and present their findings to a panel of judges.
A total of 72 students grouped into 13 teams entered the competition. Eight of those teams were selected to present to members of the McGowan School of Business Advisory Council before the top four teams, comprised of 19 students, were chosen.
Representatives of Target judged for the final round of competition.
The winning team split $1,000 in prize money while the second place team split $500.
