Case Competition Divisions. The Case Competition provides a realistic preview of the types of problems that students may eventually encounter in the workplace. The case study focuses on any number of HR/workplace issues and requires strategic thinking, ethical decision-making, and strong leadership and presentation skills.

To help level the playing field and more effectively address the varying experience levels of both traditional and nontraditional students, Case Competition teams will compete in one of two division levels:

  • Division I: Each team is made up of a minimum of two and a maximum of six undergraduate students, with each team member being age 25 or younger as of January 1, 2017.
  • Division II: Each team is made up of a minimum of two and a maximum of six students meeting one of the criteria below:
    • The team is made up entirely of graduate students (regardless of age) OR
    • The team is made up of undergraduate students and at least one team member is age 26 or older as of January 1, 2017.

Case Competition Teams. This year, 30 teams will have the opportunity to compete at each Case Competition event (Central, West and East).
