Case Competition—Employers

What is a Case Competition?

A case competition starts with the presentation a “problem” fictitious or real from your organization. The case is usually presented as a short story or case with accompanying data to illustrate key aspects of the situation. A student or team are asked to identify how they would solve the problem and present their solution to a panel of judges, who evaluate the analysis and the effectiveness of the presentation.

Why participate in Case Competitions?

Case competitions provides you an opportunity to have our students review and provide possible solutions or ideas for your organization. It also provided you an excellent way to recruit talent and get your brand out on campus.

Examples of Case Competitions

Marketing and Sales Competition:

Students will be provided a scenario/case facing a company and will develop a sales/marketing plan to solve such issue. Click here to see a sample Marketing and Sales Case description.

Cross Functional Competition:

Students will work in cross functional teams (ex: Business Students partners with Computer Science Majors) to solve an issue or case facing an organization. These cases require students to collaborate as the case will involve components and knowledge from different majors or industries.  Click here to see a sample Cross Functional Case description.

What is given to the student that wins the Case Competition?

Each competition will have incentives for the winners and participants. Each employer is required to provide a prize for the winning team (e.g., scholarships, gift cards, etc.). In addition, the winning team will be provided an opportunity to meet with the company CEO or members of the executive leadership team. All student participants will receive a certification of completion of the case competition.
