An Ithaca College team has been selected as one of six national finalists in The Case Competition, which focuses on budgeting and advice for a fictional political campaign. The submission from Ryan Bince (Communication Studies '13) and Alec Mitchell (Communication, Management and Design '12), was selected from among 200 proposals, evaluated in three rounds of competition. The finalists will present their work in Washington, D.C., after a week of networking and training with media professionals from POLITICO, NBC, Google, and Twitter. The winning team will earn scholarships.
Ryan Bince has been studying political communication as part of his major in Communication Studies and approached Dr. Donathan Brown about the competition. Dr. Brown mentored Ryan and Alec throughout the creative and competitive process and is extremely proud of their success. His course in Political Communication focuses on many of the issues and questions with which students grapple during The Case Competition.
Congratulations to Ryan and Alec and best wishes in the finals!
