JWU Teams Win Tri-State Society for HR Management Student Case Competition

Human Resource students from JWU won the undergraduate and graduate case competitions at the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Student Case Competition on April 7.

This “realistic job preview” enables team members to leverage their course knowledge and apply it to a real-life HR situation. During the competition, each team analyzed and solved a business case by preparing a 15-minute oral presentation, which required integrated HR thinking, ethical decision-making, and strong communication and presentation skills. Preliminary and final oral presentation rounds were judged onsite by a panel of certified SHRM members.

Nine teams, comprised of undergraduate and graduate students from schools across Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut, competed in the competition at the University of Rhode Island.

Congratulations to the following JWU team members:
