The Energy Association of the University of Houston in cooperation with the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR) and the Azerbaijan Center worked closely to organize the semi-annual case competition.
The topic of this competition was “What types of global impact will Azerbaijan make in energy industry?”.
The Azerbaijan Center welcomed three of the four participating teams.
The teams visited the Center to get a more intimate view of the history of Azerbaijan and its people. The President of the Center, Irada Akhoundova and one of our amazing volunteers, Nikki Nakamura, both shared their knowledge about Azerbaijan. The students were very pleased with their visits at the Center and we loved providing them with more cultural insights.
On April 26th, on the day of the competition, Irada Akhoundova and the guests of Azerbaijan Center and representatives of Baku Higher Oil School, Mr. Elmar Gasimov, came to greet the participants and the judges.
We would like to thank our sponsor, SOCAR, the Energy Association of the University of Houston represented by Mark Diaz and Sarah Murphy, and the judges David Nakamura, Mehriban Efendi, Eldar Guliyev and Kamran Zahid for making this case competition possible but also for their energy and constant support.
Congratulations to the winners!
