Fisher College of Business Biz Quiz

The ninth annual Fisher College of Business Biz Quiz competition will be held on November 14th, 15th and 16th, 2014. Student teams from 15-18 universities will come to The Ohio State University campus to be tested on their knowledge of current business events using a fast-paced game show format.  The competing teams will be quizzed on articles that appeared in The Wall Street Journal from September 29 through November 10, 2014. View the 2013 competition rules and sample questions for additional information.

Biz Quiz challenges teams of undergraduate students on their knowledge of business-related hot topics and issues in The Wall Street Journal. The culmination of the event is a final round in which the top three teams square off in a fast-paced showdown.  In addition to the oral quizzing rounds, students also compete in written questions on the WSJ throughout the weekend.  The result:  a business school competition unlike any other in the U.S. 

“It’s critical that tomorrow’s leaders stay up-to-date on the most relevant challenges facing business today,” said Patricia West, associate dean for undergraduate programs at Ohio State’s Fisher College of Business. “Biz Quiz is designed to help foster that learning and bring together students from top business programs around the country in a fun, high-energy environment.”

Biz Quiz’s value was best summarized by Eric Hornung, senior and 2013 team member from The Ohio State University’s Fisher College of Business.   He states: "In an education system that so frequently focused on theory, proofs, and equations, Biz Quiz offers students the opportunity to see how these ideas are used in business."

In 2013, the team winners were: 

  Oral Quizzing: Written Quizzing:
First Place: Texas A&M University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Second Place: The Ohio State University Texas A&M
Third Place: Miami University University of Kentucky
