The College organized the first Undergraduate Case Competition in 2001; two undergraduate competitions have been held each year (in spring and fall semesters) since then. Open to all senior undergraduate students enrolled in the Strategic Management capstone course (GEB 4890), the competition provides students the opportunity to challenge their abilities to analyze and understand an ongoing business, and to make strategic recommendations about how to effectively deal with (including how to pay to for) solutions to the business challenges they have either identified or been told to focus on by the subject company's executives.

Competition Date

September 18-19, 2015


The winning team will receive $100 per student.
