Case competitions provide an avenue to show employers or campus partners the value you can add to your specific career industry. You will be using classroom stills/knowledge to provide solutions to “real world scenarios”. This is a great selling point on your resume and an ideal avenue to apply the skills needed in your industry.
Sharks will not only gain hands-on experience in their field but also will be competing for prizes and/or scholarships.
Each case challenges students to utilize critical thinking skills to assess the case study and develop viable solutions that will be evaluated by an expert panel of judges. Top solutions will be presented to a panel of judges including representatives from the individual company, campus partners, and NSU faculty.
