First-Year Case Competitions
Experiential learning isn’t only for upperclassmen. First-year students get the chance to experiment with what they’ve learned in the classroom through various competitions and simulations.
Students get their first shot at making it big in the six-minute pitch competition. Groups in each section develop a product or service. They pitch the idea they believe will be a well-received by consumers. This culminates in a pitch of their ideas where they compete against their classmates.
The top teams from every section are invited to compete once again, in front of a group of young alumni, professors and international faculty via video conferencing in a Shark Tank-style competition. Can your team prove they have what it takes in just six minutes? Students get a taste for what it takes to bring an idea to reality.
