The 2017 MIS Case Competition is the second annual competition based on business cases focused in Management Information Systems. Open to all School of Business students, you will be required to form teams of four eligible students, prepare a case solution presentation, and present your solution to a panel of judges.
Not only are scholarship awards going to be presented to the top three performing teams, but this case competition gives business students an opportunity to challenge themselves and apply the skills acquired in the classroom in a real-life scenario to prepare themselves for future business endeavors. The case is based off a real- world business problem and will be judged by a panel of faculty members.
