Warwick Business School competition addresses healthcare for aging population

- Print  | 

The University of Warwick's business school has opened applications for its annual MBA and postgraduate student competition for business schools across the globe. This year's theme? Creating solutions to provide healthcare to the growing elderly population.

"MBA students will apply their business and economic knowledge to collaborate with students of other disciplines, such as medical and engineering, to create innovative solutions in healthcare," said Farah Abdulhadi, director of the Warwick Business School Case Challenge.

This is the fourth year the U.K.-based business school has held the healthcare Case Challenge, which is sponsored by GE Healthcare and GE Healthcare Finnamore. An expert panel of judges will be selecting the solution that best meets the needs to this specific patient cohort.

Whoever wins the competition for creating the best healthcare solution for the aging population will pocket £4,500, which is equal to a little more than $6,400.

The deadline to submit an application is Feb. 22. To learn more about the competition and applicant qualifications, click here.
