Case Competitions

What is a Case Competition?

Case competitions are an opportunity for students to work alone or together in teams to analyze a problem specific to a case study, and strategically develop the best solution(s) within the case study guidelines by a certain date. Case competitions are usually sponsored by an organization or company. Depending on each competition, student teams may be required to present to a panel of judges or to submit a final analysis to judges for review. Judges determine the “winning team” based on the judging criteria put in place.

 

 

There are many benefits to participating in case competitions:

  • An opportunity to apply the knowledge and skill sets learned in the classroom learning environment to solve complex, real-world problems and receive feedback from industry professionals
  • Building professional relationships through unique networking experiences
  • Developing and improving leadership, organizational, presentation, case analysis, and teamwork skills
