2012 ECLP Case Competition Roundup

After completing four Regional competitions, the 2012 ECLP Case Competition has come to a close. All together 18 business schools participated with almost 700 first year MBA students applying to take part. The students worked in teams to solve a real world problem for GE’s Aviation business - how to employ the Industrial Internet to improve overall operations and efficiency and how best to rollout the proposed solutions in the business itself.

The teams with the best solutions from each school presented their ideas at one of four Regional competitions held this Fall where a judging panel comprised of GE Aviation, corporate marketing & ECLP recruiting leaders evaluated the ideas. Not only did the students receive exposure to high level GE representatives but in return GE Aviation executives received a set of innovative solutions they can use to help shape and implement the future of the Industrial Internet in their business.

We previously reported on the results of the Northeast Regional competition where Cornell’s Johnson School took home the top prize. As promised, we would now like to share the winners of the remaining three competitions.

Congratulations to the following winning teams!

The ECLP Case Competition was a great experience. We got not only to learn about GE, the aviation industry, the Industrial Internet and GE's ECLP program, but also to come up with great analysis and recommendations of a business/technology case, a solid slide deck, a good presentation and responding to Q&A, and most especially to do a great team work.

I want to thank all the people from GE that made this competition possible and look forward to meeting you again soon.
