We are excited to announce that Baruch Weissman graduate students Ashley Bueno, Theresa Navalta, and Kimberly Rechter came in first place in the 2022 Human Capital Case Competition hosted by OHDCC (Organization and Human Development Consulting Club). OHDCC is a student-run organization focused on supporting Social-Organizational Psychology master’s students at Teachers College, Columbia University. The Baruch team beat two Columbia teams to win.
All three winners on our team are Masters of Science I/O Psychology students at Baruch. They received $300 worth in prizes and are given networking time to meet with the judges who are consultants at PwC and Deloitte.
In the annual case competition, student teams compete to present innovative solutions to a business case in the area of human capital management. The case requires participants to think as strategic Human Capital consultants, outline any changes that they might recommend to the client, identify problems, discuss Human Capital functions, recommend specific changes, and justify their recommendations.
