Case Competition Opportunities

Think of case competitions as "business triathalons," combining:

  • Your strategic business sense - your instincts
  • Business and analytical skills - what you learn in class
  • Communication skills - your ability to sell your ideas

Competitions are a chance to prove your business know-how and put your education to work.  You might compete right here at Krannert or somewhere around the world.  In addition to cash and prizes, you might win a job offer!

Get the benefits.  Get involved.
