Vlerick case is a winner in the 2011 EFMD Case Writing Competition
‘The 2008 Anheuser-Busch InBev Deal: Successful M&A, Divestment and Financing Strategies in Harsh Times’ – a case written by Vlerick Professor Wouter De Maeseneire and Vlerick Researcher Jonas Standaert – has won the 2011 EFMD Case Writing Competition in the ‘Finance & Banking’ category. According to EFMD, this was a record year for the number of entries received, and the quality was exceptionally high.
In total, there were 14 winning cases – and, for the very first time, there was also a ‘Best of the Best’ category, which was jointly awarded to the winners of the African Business Cases category (Said Business School, University of Oxford) and the winner of the Inclusive Business Models category (IBS Center for Management Research, IBS Hyderabad).
For the past 30 years, EFMD – a leading network of business schools and companies – has been organising its annual case writing competition. The aim of this competition is to encourage the writing of case material involving European companies and institutions as well as material dealing with topics concerning other geographical areas, such as Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, which are generally under-represented among the available sources.
All of the cases are available on the ecch website (European Case Clearing House).
