2020 CASE COMPETITION SUMMARY

KeyBank and Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University hosted its 16th Annual Minority MBA Student Case Competition on February 28- March 01, 2020 in Cleveland, Ohio. During the 16th Annual Minority MBA Student Case Competition the KeyBank Foundation supervised the selection of a contemporary and never-before-used case topic that addressed business issues with varied implications at either a national or international level. Teams of three presenters were invited from universities and colleges across the country to compete. Please note that, due to funding limitations, no alternate member of the teams were invited to participate or be sponsored by the program. Each team benefited from the opportunity to develop important professional skills such as analyzing and responding quickly to often-complex business issues. Also, teams had a chance to hone their communication and team-building talents while learning from the expertise of business executive judges and moderators.
