As you may know, a big part of getting an MBA is competing in case competitions. There are numerous case competitions focusing on different subjects – “Marketing, Finance, Venture Capital, Supply Chain, Strategy, Operations, Data Analytics, Marketing Analytics, etc.” – across the country and even the globe. Ohio State prides itself by competing in and performing well in all of these case competitions. Recently Ohio State took first place in the ACG case competition in Cleveland and second place in the Strategy case competition at the University of Illinois.
Teams from Ohio State have competed or plan to compete in the below competitions.
- Procter & Gamble Marketing Case Competition
- The Lincoln Challenge
- Macy’s Marketing Case Competition
- Venture Capital Investment Competition “VCIC”
- The Big Ten Case Competition
- ACG Case Competition
- International Supply Chain Case Competition
- Deloitte Supply Chain Case Competition
- The GE Case Competition
- And many more
What are the prizes you ask? They range from a cool trophy to $40,000 CASH!!!!
I have competed in three case competitions and plan to complete in more. They are a great learning experience, fun, tiring, stressful and a fantastic networking opportunity. Many students end up with internships and full-time jobs from competing in case competitions.
