Throughout your studies, you will have the opportunity to participate in case competitions. Participating in an intercollegiate competition is a memorable and rewarding experience. By participating in these renowned competitions you'll gain the confidence and skills to analyze and solve real-life business problems under pressure. Competitions often provide the most hands-on, realistic simulations of what it would be like to take on a specific role in a business.
You may also have the opportunity to meet and interact with various representatives from professional companies associated with the competition as you progress through the stages. This is a unique networking experience because you not only have the chance to meet these individuals, but you also have the opportunity to pick their brain regarding the work you have done on the case. Many case competitions combine recruitment as part of the event. Competitions are often run by the employers themselves with the purpose of seeking enthusiastic and driven candidates, either for internships or full-time, entry level positions.
