16th Annual Internal Case Competition on Social Responsibility
Each January, the Milgard School of Business hosts an internal case competition that is open to all undergraduate students at the University of Washington Tacoma. In 2022, the competition will take place on Friday, January 28.
A case competition is an event where teams of 4 receive a case study for a limited period of time. During this period, the teams must identify the most prominent issues facing the company and develop a strategy to address these key issues in order to help companies achieve their goals. Winning strategies require attention to detail, creativeness and business acumen when presenting recommendations. (ref. UCC)
It is important for teams to work together, assign roles to each team member, and present their idea in a clear and concise manner to industry professionals. Case competitions are a great way to develop your leadership skills, practice public speaking and time management, strengthen ability to analyze and think strategically through a real-life scenario, and network with professionals.
