Four teams of Malvern Prep students participated in a Business Ethics Competition hosted by Villa Joseph Marie High School on Saturday, December 9. Each team of participants received a different case study from a real-life business scenario, which had been prepared by Villa Joseph Marie students based on interviews with local professionals.
As part of the competition, each team was required to analyze the case study, determine a potential solution to their scenario, and then prepare a presentation to explain their recommendation, its justification, and the values from their education that helped them build their case. The panel was comprised of judges from Villanova University, St Joseph's University Business School, and local businesses.
All teams presented their solutions to the panel. The three teams who scored the highest were invited to share their presentation with the full audience to determine which team prepared the best solution for their case.
Two of four teams representing Malvern Prep placed in the top three. The team of Neil Morrison ’24, Leonardo Scarpato ’24, and Josh DeStefano ’24 won first place and were awarded scholarships of $5,000 each to St. Joseph’s University, should they choose to apply and attend. The team of Mac Traynor ’25, Austin Trout ’25, and Logan Turley ’25 won third place.
Congratulations to all participants and thank you to moderators Mr. Zak Hill and Ms. Jessica Kenworthey who chaperoned and helped coach the teams in their preparation.
