In the fall and spring of every year, the Undergraduate Business Council hosts a case competition open to all McCombs students. Case competitions give students the opportunity to showcase their business talents in a week-long competition where they are presented a real-world business problem. Corporate sponsors write each case and judge the competition. In the past, winners of the competition have represented McCombs in larger competitions like the USC Marshall Cup Case Competition and the International Case Competition in Hong Kong. Case prizes for the top three winning teams usually range from $500-$2000. Previous sponsors have included: ConocoPhillips, General Motors, Ford Motor Company, Shell, Target, OtherInbox and Dropbox. This program provides students a wonderful opportunity to develop problem-solving skills while gaining exposure to major companies and varying industries.
