UT Takes Second in East Region SHRM Student Case Competition!

Philadelphia, PA, April 22, 2017–  The University of Toledo’s Human Resource Management program is proud to announce that a team of three HR students— Amber Mulholland, Dina Teeti, and Morgan Siegler—has won second place in the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) East Region’s HR Case Competition in Philadelphia!  Dr. Jenell Wittmer, Associate Professor of Management, accompanied the team to the competition.

This year’s East region’s competition included twenty-two undergraduate teams from twelve states.  After preliminary presentations, the University of Toledo’s team competed against a team from Olivet Nazarene University (Illinois) in the final round.

The case competition is a fun way to motivate and prepare students for their first professional job in human resource management.  It tests both their human resource knowledge and general business acumen, as well as an understanding of business strategy, operations, and oral and written communication skills.

The competition is also an event that offers the opportunity to bring professional chapter volunteers, students and student chapter advisors together in a meaningful way. The students receive an opportunity to network with other students and showcase their competency to HR practitioners.

For more information on the Human Resource Management major and graduate specialization, contact Dr. Jenell Wittmer, (419) 530-2264, or visit us on the web at http://www.utoledo.edu/business/MGMT/
