Spring Case Competition: Professional Innovation
Presented to you by the Texas Asian Business Student Association (ABSA) and the Hispanic Business Student Association (HBSA), the case competition is designed to simulate a real-world consulting scenario where teams of four students must develop and present a solution for a given problem. Each team will be judged by corporate recruiters and professor on the feasibility of recommendations, logic of critical thinking, and delivery of presentation.
Network with Representatives
Throughout the competition, students will get the chance to meet various company employees and representatives from our main sponsor. These interactions can help students practice their communication skills while also impressing potential future employers.
Gain Valuable Skills
To form a winning solution, students will have to learn to utilize a variety of different resources available online or through McCombs to research various aspects of the project. Furthermore, participants will enhance their communication skills by preparing a presentation and learning from judges feedback.
Win Cash Prizes
The top three case teams will receive significant cash prizes.
HBSA and ABSA are excited to co-host the 2016 Spring Case Competition.
