On Friday, January 29, UCLA Anderson’s Energy Management Group hosted the fifth annual Challenges in Energy Case Competition, which drew teams from some of the top business schools from around the country.
This competition had the largest turnout to date, with 12 teams from 10 schools participating, including Rice, Duke, Purdue, UC Berkeley, USC, UCLA, SMU, UC Irvine, Northwestern and Cornell. UCLA Anderson demonstrated its knowledge of the energy industry by winning the competition and taking home the $2,500 prize. The Anderson team, Age of Voltron, consisted of Dan Komula (’17), Arnab Pal (’17) and Ean Mulligan (’17), all active members of the Energy Management Group. This victory continues a tradition of success for UCLA’s Energy Management Group. In late 2015, UCLA won the Ross Renewable Energy Case Competition and a team from UCLA won the fourth annual Challenges in Energy Competition last year.
