In considering how a major telecommunications company can help Americans age 65 and older make better use of mobile phones, Edward Drakhlis of Brooklyn, N.Y., thought about two major factors: Many seniors are uncomfortable with mobile technology, and they have fixed incomes.
With his resulting proposal, Drakhlis won the grand prize in the Notre Dame MBA Mini Deep-Dive Challenge, a virtual case competition sponsored by the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business and Sprint. As part of the award, Drakhlis will receive a $25,000 fellowship toward tuition upon successfully matriculating into the Notre Dame MBA program, as well as additional prizes.
