The Accenture/Chicago Sinfonietta Competition participants were comprised of Northwestern graduate students and alumni from the McCormick School of Engineering Professional Masters Programs as well as the Bienen School of Music. The competition was designed to generate business and marketing strategies that will increase revenue for the Chicago Sinfonietta. Accenture hosted the three final presentations in their downtown Chicago office on March 13th – with the team including MEM student, Carlos Gomez, and MS Predictive Analytics student, Carlos Ardila, winning the competition. The winning students split a cash prize of $1,000 and were awarded 10 Chicago Sinfonietta concert tickets, as well as a networking dinner with Accenture Directors.
A special thanks to MEM Alum and Accenture Consultant, Jennifer Wei, for all her hard work in making this event a great success. Thank you to all the students involved, and congratulations to the winning team!
