Global Case Competition

Spring 2022

*** FINALISTS ANNOUNCED. See below.  ***

Welcome to the second year of the Global Case Competition. Based on what we learned from last year, we are slightly changing the format of the competition to provide more opportunities for additional universities to participate and also to streamline the registration and submission processes.

We will be opening the competition this year to our international partners as well as to any global universities.

There will be two phases to the competition: preliminary and final Rounds.

  • The preliminary round will be conducted during March 25-April 1.
  • The final round will be conducted during May 20-May 27.

Each university will only be allowed to enter one student team (we recommend 2 to 4 students) in the competition. Both undergraduate and graduate students may participate.

  • For the preliminary round, the participating groups will be asked to submit a one-page memo of their case analysis and a 10-minute video of their presentation. Each team is encouraged to be as creative as possible in communicating their main points in the presentation.
  • Six finalist teams will be chosen from the preliminary entries, and those finalists will participate in the final round, where they will be expected to submit a 3-page memo of their analysis and a 30- minute presentation video on a new case.

Due to the generosity of our sponsors this year, we will be more than doubling the prize money for the competition:

  • First Place -- $2500
  • Second Place -- $1500
  • Third Place -- $1000
  • Honorable Mention -- $500
  • The two finalist teams not receiving monetary gifts will receive alternative gifts from the School of Business and Leadership.
  • All case competition participants, in both the preliminary and final rounds, will receive an electronic certificate of participation or of their placement from the School of Business and Leadership and Nazareth College.

We hope your university and students will find this case competition an exciting opportunity and participate this year.
