Haslam MBA Students Win Canadian Business Case Competition
A team of four master’s students from the Haslam College of Business at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, has won the Canadian Blood Services (CBS) and SCAN Health’s Virtual Business Case Competition 2018/19. The competition aims to encourage rising business leaders to come up with methods to help health care systems pursue innovation in supply chain and logistics strategies.
Haslam’s team designed the best solution to help CBS achieve “vein-to-vein” tracking and traceability of blood products from the vein of donors to the vein of recipients. The proposal, by students Michelle Davis, Carson Hollingsworth, Morgan Sowers and Abigail Wegman (all of whom graduated recently) calls for CBS to use tracking technology to create a transparent, predictive and balanced supply chain for its blood products. For their winning proposal, the team will split a cash prize of $4,000.
