Global leaders and managers need the skills to communicate ideas and solve problems with cognitively diverse teams. We offer our students an opportunity to develop these skills outside the classroom through our Communication Center’s case competitions.

A case competition is an academic competition in which students come together to solve a case that is presented. Students use teamwork, critical thinking, and organizational skills to deduce a recommendation that they support in a presentation in front of judges or company sponsors. 

Case competitions, among other activities at Krannert, allow students to learn new skills and practice communication, teamwork, problem solving and professionalism while bringing real-world applications to business concepts.
