A year ago, Warwick came away from the Global MBA Trophy in Athens with a 15th place, and dropped to third in the league. A year on, they have a chance of overtaking London Business School to go top if they can beat them on the waters off Rhodes.
Third- place in the league Cranfield will miss out on having the same chance.
Meanwhile, Insead and MIP are strongly fancied this year: If they can do well here, repeat their 2010 results in the ABC cup and put on some sort of a result at Cranfield, then the Sailing League competition could be wide open.
The Global MBA Trophy, now in its sixth edition moves from its long time home in the waters off Piraeus, Athens to the historic and beautiful island of Rhodes in the Dodecanese. The regatta village opens on Thursday 28th, with racing starting on Friday 29th, and the prize – giving and gala dinner on Saturday 30th.
Crucial to the MBA sailing league, the regatta moves for the first time to a two – division format, meaning that there are only 10 boats competing for the trophy, and so only 10 points on offer to the participants and crucially, only 11 points to those who miss out.
The full list of participants, along with their current league position, and number of points (low points is best) before Rhodes is shown below:
|London Business School 1||1||21|
|Warwick Business School||2||20|
|Rotterdam Erasmus School of Management 1||4||40|
|SDA Bocconi 1||8||51|
|MIP Politecnico di Milano||11||60|
|Chicago Booth 1||27=||65|
