On Friday, March 24, the Tippie College of Business hosted the Spring 2023 PepsiCo Team Sales Challenge, featuring student teams from the University of Iowa and Iowa State University.

After a continental breakfast, students received the case and had four hours to prepare their sales pitch. PepsiCo sales managers served as team coaches and judges, and awarded prizes for first and second place team, best presenter, and best Q&A.

Tippie students won first place in the team category with team members Cori Caleo, Will Christianson, Conor Mackay, Nicole Rund, and Macy Young. Tippie also took second place with team members Alexander Robinson, Danielle Schwan, Ryan Stroschein, and Madison Stuckmaier. Tippie student Madison Stuckmaier won best presenter overall.

Tippie Director of Undergraduate Studies in Marketing Tom Walsh said, “Congratulations to our outstanding students who continued Tippie’s dominance of this event for another year!”

2023 was the seventh year that PepsiCo has sponsored this team sales case competition.
