Students Neeraj Gupta, Jeffrey Bresslour, Jonathan Faloon, Alison Rubinson and Paras Shah won the first round in California before advancing to the final round to present to senior leaders from GE and ECLP. The McCombs team beat competitors from Notre Dame’s Mendoza School of Business, the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business, George Washington University School of Business, University of Virginia Darden School of Business and the Carnegie Mellon Tepper School of Business.

Inspired by Healthymagination, GE’s initiative of better health for more people, the case competition focused on the global obesity epidemic, asking the teams to find new and innovative solutions for this global health challenge.

ECLP is a two-year rotational program at GE that offers MBA graduates and experienced professionals the opportunity to drive growth within a GE business unit, receive commercial and leadership training, and be part of a global network of marketing and sales leaders.


#1 As the honorary "Coach K" of

As the honorary "Coach K" of this fantastic team, all I had to do was get out of their way and let them pitch a fantastic idea! It was such a pleasure and source of pride for me to see Alison, Jeff, Jonathan, Neeraj and Paras in action. Their research and dedication was impeccable and everyone at GE was incredibly impressed - hence the 1st place finish at USC's regional competition and, later, at our GE Headquarters in Fairfield! As a McCombs alum, I couldn't be more excited to know the Longhorns continue to shine and represent my beloved alma mater in the best possible light.
