A college professor from Westfield guided four graduate students to high honors at an international HR case competition in Minneapolis on Nov. 16.

Dave Ferio, director of the Master of Human Resource Management program at Rutgers University, served as faculty adviser to the team of Tav Dhingra, Kimberly Iannarone, Ben Ozdemir, and Nick Veronsky.

The students developed actionable recommendations to improve an employer’s workforce inclusion practices. Their impressive plan won third place out of an initial round of 21 teams representing HR-centered graduate programs within top colleges and universities worldwide.
