John Carroll Team wins the DDR Case Competition

Boler School of Business seniors, Andre Alamina and John Scantling were the winning team at the fourth annual DDR real estate case competition. Andre, a finance major and John, an accounting major, were chosen to represent John Carroll by winning the local competition and presented at DDR’s headquarters in Beachwood on Friday, November 3.

This was the fourth year for the competition and the second that John Carroll has participated. The other schools in the competition were Colgate, The Ohio State University and Case Western University. Senior managers at DDR judged the teams and declared the Boler team as the winner.

Each team had to chose from one of the three cases in the competition, REIT Strategies, Location and Millennial Consumer. The JCU team presented the REIT Strategies case and impressed the judges with their knowledge of the case and their ability to answer the judge’s questions.

As the winning team, Andre and John received $5000 and an opportunity to interview with DDR.

Congratulations Andre and John and thank you for making JCU and the Boler School proud.
