Imperial College Management School beat off competition from 17 other business schools to win this year's International Business Schools Sailing Regatta.
Imperial College Management School beat off competition from 17 other business schools to win this year’s International Business Schools Sailing Regatta. After two days of intensive competition in the Solent on 22nd and 23rd July, Imperial finished just ahead of SDA Bacconi from Italy in second and London Business School in third to carry off the Laurie Browne Trophy, provided by IBM Global Services.
The trophy, named after Laurie Browne, an IBM management consultant who was tragically killed two years ago in a sailing accident off Cowes and Poole, was presented to the victorious Imperial College Management School crew by Laurie Browne’s parents.
Yet again the competition was fierce, but the atmosphere social and fun. With no shortage of management expertise on board any of the yachts, it was teamwork that won the day, commented Andrew Creasey, VP of IBM’s Business Innovation Services. All in all a great event, that we hope to sponsor again next year.
