What is it?
The University of Michigan – Flint Corporate Case Competition brings together undergrad and graduate students from all across campus to form interdisciplinary teams that are asked to develop a solution to an issue currently impacting corporations on a global level. In addition to providing an excellent opportunity to work on a real business problem and to develop leadership and teambuilding skills, the Corporate Case Competition is a great resume builder. After coming up with a solution to the case your team will have the opportunity to present and market your ideas to a panel of judges consisting of faculty, staff, and corporate representatives. The numerous benefits of participating combined with the networking opportunities with corporations make the Corporate Case Competition a unique and exciting event. Freshman, sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students from any major are welcome to participate.
