Case competitions offer NSU students the opportunity to solve company-specific problems (real or fictitious) to senior level executives and faculty. Students review the scenario and develop a viable solution. Sharks will not only gain hands-on experience in their field but also will be competing for prizes and/or scholarships.
Immigration Policy & Election Campaign Case Competition
You are a candidate seeking a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives from a constituency in South Florida. You and your campaign team are charged with developing a bipartisan immigration policy to unite your constituents on this issue. This will be your signature issue and you hope that once in Washington you can lead a push for a major immigration reform bill that will attract support across the aisles.
Once you and your team (of up to 3 individuals) have established your policy, you are then tasked with presenting your campaign position to the audience in your constituency. You will also hope through national media exposure to present it to a wider audience. Identify common myths or perceptions of voters in South Florida regarding immigration. Place immigration as a South Florida issue into the large national debate.
The goal is to gain the support of voters in your constituency while also appealing more broadly to the American people by creating an effective marketing plan and identifying key stakeholders that will be impacted by your policy.
Develop a 5–10-minute video and an accompanying two-page immigration manifesto (proposal/essay) pitching your policy and campaign marketing idea to our judges.

Health Communication Toolkit Case Competition
The USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) has issued multiple teams to create a Health Communication Tool kit educating the South Florida Community on common food borne illnesses and antibiotic resistance associated with it. The goal of this Toolkit is to provide the public helpful suggestions and resources to guide best practices within the South Florida community before, during and after an outbreak. As a part of your communication toolkit you’re expected to also assess and address the challenges in food safety as it relates to the antibiotic resistance of the foodborne illness.
You’re one of the USDA’s teams (1- 4 members per team) selected for this initiative and have been tasked with selecting a food borne illness which will be the focus of your health communication tool kit. The goal of this health communication toolkit is to educate, prepare, and assess implications associated with this food borne illness and antibiotic resistance within the South Florida community. Your team will submit your Health Communication Toolkit and Video Proposal to be reviewed by the USDA Team (faculty judges).
