This fall, MillerCoors sponsored the Kilts Center for Marketing Analytics Case Competition exclusively for Booth students to experience what it’s like to be a brand manager focused on a fascinating, real challenge. The objective: Use vast amounts of consumer data to create a new MillerCoors marketing and growth strategy to bring 21-24 year olds into the beer category.

Nine years ago, Barack Obama returned to Hyde Park for a visit after being elected president of the United States. A lot has changed since then, but one thing remains constant: the change-makers Obama surrounds himself with.

Over the course of last year, a team of our fellow Boothies took on a $1 billion challenge against several other universities to see which school could best invest the theoretical sum of money in commercial real estate. The Booth team’s unique strategy beat out the rest of the Real Confidence University Challenge participants and earned them the $30,000 grand prize (in real money). The Booth team returned 23.86% on their portfolio over the course of the year and cleared the runner up of 32 teams by 4.80%. Hear what a couple of the team members have to say about their winning two-point approach and how Booth set them up for success.
