Case Competition for NSU Students

What is a Case Competition?

A case competition starts with the presentation of a “problem,” fictitious or real, from an employer or campus partner. 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 is 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.
