“Ryerson University MBA teams took home the top three spots in the annual Rotman Corporate Social Responsibility Case Competition last weekend.

MBA teams from Ryerson, University of Toronto, York University, Concordia University, University of Alberta and Laurier University were given six days to prepare a marketing plan to help transform GM Chevrolet’s image to a more eco-friendly car manufacturer. Each team delivered their pitch to a panel of General Motor executives and other consulting firms including Deloitte Touche.

Ryerson, with multiple teams competing, swept the competition winning first, second and third place.” (Ryerson Today)

“Basketball players, subway musicians, even show dogs have had their stories told on the web by Sharyn Joffe, image arts ’06. But the story behind the award-winning video producer and editor has its own compelling moments.

[Sharyn] Joffe produces short online videos for Madison Square Garden (MSG), the iconic New York City entertainment venue where she has worked since 2008. Her videos feature New York-area sports teams playing the arena — game recaps, player interviews, fan events and promos. Among them is The Bracket, a web program where fans vote on their favourite aspects of New York sports. Last year, it earned Joffe an Emmy Award for Interactivity — her third Emmy after just six years in the field.”
