Case competitions develop problem solving abilities, analytical abilities, time management capabilities, presentation abilities and confidence in presenting to a range of business audiences. These competitions prepare students for success in careers, job interviews, and better decision making.
The University of Vermont Grossman School of Business is hosting a first-of-its kind Global Family Enterprise Case Competition in 2013. This competition will match undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in universities and colleges with the world's finest family business programs.
During the spring 2012 semester, the School sent a team of five students to the John Molson Undergraduate Case Competition. Twenty teams from internationally renowned business schools participated in what is called one of the world's largest and most prestigious international case competition at the undergraduate level.
Business Pitch Competition
The Business Pitch Competition will hone the skills of students who want to start their own business. Participants will develop and pitch their ideas to a select group of judges that include prominent and successful alumni and leading members of the business community. The competition will help students translate their academic learning into practical applications. There is even the potential for some of the ideas to attract attention of the entrepreneurs and venture capitalists who will be judging the competition and sitting in the audience. Learn more
The School of Business Administration is able to fund the business pitch and case competitions thanks to a generous donation from a University of Vermont alumnus.
