We are Boiler Business Competitions.

Boiler Business Competitions (BBC) is a student-led organization that organizes and prepares ambitious students to compete in business case competitions. Case competitions provide students with an opportunity to improve and utilize analysis and presentations skills.  Students are required to analyze a business case in sometimes brief time frames ranging from hours to weeks, so mastering business frameworks for rapid use is crucial.  Teams of three to four students then present their solutions to a group of judges representing industry-leading corporations, opening numerous doors to new opportunities for those involved. 

Case competitions present opportunities for students to showcase abilities to work with teams, present information, and generate insightful solutions. Students can explore careers in consulting while preparing themselves for successful careers.  The BBC leadership team is dedicated to providing resources and support for students interested in participating in case competitions and case challenges. BBC is currently partnering with Purdue University Consulting (PUCC), the Leadership Communication Studio (LCS), Purdue Student Consulting (PSC), the Dean's Office, faculty, academic centers and other student clubs.

Our History

In 2014, Marcus Glick and Mriga Agarwal shared a common vision of providing students with the tools necessary to prepare for a successful consulting career.  By founding Boiler Business Competitions, these innovators ensured that future groups of students would have the opportunity to follow in their footsteps.  Today, Marcus works for consulting firm Thomson Reuters while Mriga consults for Deloitte.   We thank the alumnus and the numerous corporate partners who continue to support students in the case community.  BBC’s previous president, Christine Rasquinha, has dedicated tremendous effort to moving BBC into a new chapter of growth, incorporating more students with more effective tools than ever before. With current president Matt Xia taking over the reins, Christine now serves as president of the Purdue Consulting Club, a graduate consulting organization which now relies on her consulting expertise as a budding 3+2 student.  Dedication from both clubs is ensuring that collaboration continues.
