Six Kansas State University students are earning scholarships for their performance in the Phillips 66 Business Ethics Case Competition.
The competition is hosted by the Phillips 66 Excellence in Business Ethics Initiative in the College of Business Administration. Sponsorship and scholarship money is furnished by Phillips 66.
The competition puts students in a real-world simulation.
Each team is given a business ethics case study, and is required to write a four-page solution and present their solution to deal with the ethical dilemma within a 15-minute time frame.
Ten teams from across the university entered the competition.
Team Integrity came in first, with members Gavin Koester, senior in economics, Concordia; Alex Severance, senior in history, Lenexa; and Mark Holton, master’s student in architecture, St. Louis, Mo. The team received a $1,000 scholarship.
Coming in second was Team Transparent and Accountable, which received a $750 scholarship.
Team members include Krisha Stoss, junior in accounting, Great Bend; Jordan Misunas, senior in marketing, Manhattan; and Shuwa Zhang, senior in finance, China.
