He and Bota have decided to donate their finalist trophy to the Lally School as a way of motivating the next generation of MBA and MS students to participate in similar contests. Sonja Francis, Associate Director, MBA/MS Programs, offered her congratulations, "I’m thrilled to see how well our students scored in terms of adaptability and capability to perform under pressure. They dedicated many hours during the month preceding the competition while the normal busy start of the school year unfolded.
