Undergraduate Level Case Competitions
Students receive mentorship and guidance from Bauer's world class faculty, interact with future employers and peers from around the world, and compete for cash awards.
Bauer Undergraduate students participate in local, national and international case competitions sponsored by various corporations in a variety of fields: Accounting, Oil and Gas and Energy.
All BBAs (through GENB 3302) can participate in case competitions:
Beginning in the first, core course at Bauer, every BBA has the opportunity to participate in a case competition sponsored by companies such as Shell, GEICO or Target working on real business problems and presenting to panels of corporate judges.
Supply Chain undergraduates also participate in a large number of case competitions both through their classes and in regional and national competitions.
Hosted by the Institute for Supply Management, the annual ISM Supply Chain Student Case Competition is the perfect opportunity for supply chain or business students around the nation to showcase their talents to some of the industry's top firms.
Students focus on resolving real-world strategic and tactical challenges presented in a business case in teams. Solutions are then presented to a panel of judges consisting of business professionals, academics, and corporate sponsors. Analysis parameters include logistics, network design, procurement, relationship management, and sustainability.
