Sign up for Round 1 of Aspen Case Competition by March 7
MIIS has been selected as one of 25 schools to partner on the Aspen Institute’s 2017 Business & Society International MBA Case Competition. This preeminent program differs from other MBA case study competitions in that its focus is explicitly on social, ethical and environmental decisions currently being faced by a real business. The top five teams worldwide will be flown to New York City to present in front of corporate, academic and other friends of the Aspen Institute and to compete for a share of over $30,000 in scholarship funds.
Please visit www.AspenCaseCompetition.org for more information. You may also follow @AspenBizSociety on Twitter and, for those of you who participate, join the competition’s LinkedIn group.
Our on-campus competition will take place within the 72-hour period from April 8 – 10. There is no limit to the number of student teams that may participate at MIIS in Round 1 of the competition; please email Profs. Sandra Dow and Yuwei Shi (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) by March 7, if you’d like to sign up and be put on a team!
To help students prepare for the competition, we offer a series of preparation sessions in McGowan 99 on March 10 at 8:00 – 10:30 am followed by a 72-hour mock competition, March 13 at 6:00 – 8:50 pm, and April 7 at 8:00 – 10:30 am. In addition, the review and feedback session for Round 1 competition will be held in McGowan 99 on April 11 at 6:00 – 8:50 pm. Please make sure to attend all these sessions if you plan to participate in the competition.
Despite your busy schedule, we hope you will consider taking advantage of this opportunity to think inventively about the intersection of business and society! All degree programs welcome!
