Experiential learning case competitions

Enhance your business skills and compete in a case competition

Participating in a business-related case competition is one of the best ways to develop critical business and presentation skills, gain practical real-world industry experience, and network with experts and potential employers. Students will also benefit from support and mentorship of Carey faculty to help finetune their presentation and case analysis skills.

What is a case competition?

Case competitions require a team of students to work together and solve a specific problem facing an industry or pitch an innovative idea to a panel of industry experts. The design and format of each competition varies, but generally includes the following:

  • Working with a small team to plan and prepare a case presentation
  • Presenting to a panel of industry experts who judge on business knowledge, viability, and presentations skills
  • Web-based component for submitting or partially submitting materials
  • Cash prize awards for top teams
  • Opportunities for networking as part of competition event
