Case Description and Competition Structure
The case will revolve around a business dilemma that has an ethical problem that needs to be resolved.

Each team will be asked to identify the case stakeholders, as well as the financial, legal, and ethical considerations that must be taken into account while finding a solution to the business dilemma at hand. Teams will be asked to assume a particular identity (e.g., company employees and/or consultants) and then offer solutions/recommendations to a specific identified target audience (e.g., company executives and/or a board of directors) on how the business should proceed. Presentations are not to exceed 20 minutes and will be followed by the 10 minutes of Q&A from the judges.

Judges will utilize the following criteria in evaluating teams throughout the competition:

  • Delivery
  • Depth of analysis
  • Persuasiveness
  • Recommendations that are ethical, realistic, and practical from a business viewpoint
  • Quality of responses to Q&A questions
