Welcome to the American Bankruptcy Institute/Kellogg School of Management Corporate Restructuring Competition. The purpose of the competition is to provide an opportunity for students from leading business schools to solve a hypothetical realistic business case of a distressed company, before an audience of experts in the turnaround/crisis management/restructuring industries.
The competition was co-sponsored by one of the nation's elite business schools and the premier educational institute in the field of insolvency.
In addition to the case presentations, there was a sponsored networking cocktail reception and a dinner with prominent keynote speaker, Peter J. Wallison, Arthur F. Burns Fellow in Financial Policy Studies at the American Enterprise Institute. Click here to read the transcript of the speech.
The interaction between student teams and industry professionals contributes to student development and to the professionalism of turnaround/crisis management.
