#STAMINA4

September 7, 18, 21 & 22

Similar to real-world business projects, the STAMINA4 Case Competitions are intensive, experiential learning opportunities that allow students to showcase their critical thinking and analytical abilities, communicate their ideas, and demonstrate mental tenacity. STAMINA4 participants only have four hours to analyze a case and create a presentation to share their recommendations.

Welcome to STAMINA4!

Lockheed Martin Vice President and Purdue alum, Peter Clyne explains why students might want to consider participation in case competitions: "The art of persuasion, logical thinking, financial analysis, clear communication, business acumen, teamwork, and presentation skills are all brought to bear in the cases. Students who can hone these skills in a case competition can more easily apply them in the workplace, where careers are often built on a string of work assignments that often bear many similarities to case studies."

STAMINA4-Social Impact provides an opportunity for Krannert Undergraduates to work with teams (Sophomore, Juniors and Seniors), as consultants for Water for Good. Water for Good is a nonprofit organization based out of Indiana providing clean and safe water to the Central African Republic.

STAMINA4-IT/Analytics provides an opportunity for Purdue Students to work with teams (Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors, and Master Students), to analyze an IT/Analytics case.Teams must include a minimum of 1 Krannert student.

Each team shall consist of four members, each of whom must be enrolled as a full-time student in good standing at Purdue University.
