MBS LOGOAnnouncing the winner

Mahasarakham Business School (MBS) and Emerald are proud to announce the winner of their first collaborative teaching case study competition!

The judging panel deliberated over each case study individually, scrutinising both the case and the teaching note before giving the manuscript an overall score. The winners are announced below.

Congratulations to the winner, Dr Rasi Kunapatarawong of Mahidol University International College for her case study entitled "Murrah Dairy, Thailand's first and only buffalo milk producer".

Dr Kunapatarawong received a prize of US$1,000 on behalf of MBS and was awarded a certificate for her achievement at Huamark, Bangkok, Thailand on 19 July 2015.

This aim of the MBS/Emerald case writing competition is to encourage global submissions from experts on all areas of management. The competition specifically invited case study submissions based on Thai organizations or based on protagonists who are from Thailand.

"It was a great experience writing a case for the MBS/Emerald case writing competition and at the same time learning about an SME of an emerging market and its environment. It was a great opportunity and very rewarding. I would definitely be participating in more case writing competitions in the future." (Dr Rasi Kunapatarawong, Mahidol University International College)
