The winners of the 20th CEEMAN Case Writing competition held in cooperation with Emerald were announced at the Gala dinner of the CEEMAN Annual Conference in Budapest, on 26 September.
Coincidentally the winning case, titled Painted Into a Corner: Managing the Virtual Sales Team at ColorPlus Industries, came from Hungary as well and was written by Ms. Monika Nadj and Dr. Zoltan Buzady from CEU Business School, Hungary. Dr. Buzady accepted the award from the president of the evaluating committee, Prof. Vladimir Nanut and the Emerald representative, Mr. Alec Egan. Dr. Buzady emphasized the importance of case writing and said:
It is a great honor for me to have participated again on this prestigious case global writing competition. CEEMAN and Emerald Group Publishing play a very active role in developing modern and up-to-date teaching materials and enhance the academic work in the emerging regions such as CEE region and beyond.
I am glad that we have found so many great partners in this common mission - and I wish to us all that this developmental work brings fruits in future.
