Keynote Speaker, Dr. Dan Daly has served as executive vice president of Boys Town since 2005. Prior to assuming this role, he worked as the director of training. In addition to his work at Boys Town, Daly has held professorships at University of Nebraska-Omaha, Kodiak Community College and the University of Kansas. Dr. Daly graduated magna cum laude from Xavier University, then went on to become a fellow at West Virginia University, where he received his Ph.D. in clinical psychology.
The annual CASE Competition is just one of the experiential learning opportunities provided by the Department of Management. Each year, student teams from select management classes identify a real case study which they analyze in order to make recommendations for the company or organizations.
Business leaders from the Kansas City community serve as judges, and one student team will win the top prize. The competition gives students the opportunity to learn research, analytical, presentation and networking skills, while exemplifying the Bloch School's commitment to experiential learning (learning by doing).
