The competition is known for its unique 24 Hour format, which pushes top MBA students to develop solutions for a real world business while under time constraints.
The fifth annual Haskayne 24 Hour Case Competition will be hosted by the Haskayne School of Business from March 5-8, 2014. The event will challenge teams from Haskayne and other attending MBA programs to put their creative and analytical skills to the test while offering opportunities to make connections with local business, judges, and sponsors. No other university in Western Canada holds a case competition of this intense 24 hour format or competitive elimination style.
The Haskayne 24 Hour Case Competition is a unique competition that brings together the pressure of business decision-making with the students’ developing skills in teamwork, analysis, communication, critical thinking, and quick "on-your-feet" action. Student teams will work around the clock (literally) to find solutions to real-life problems, and then present their ideas in an effective and clear manner to a panel of judges. Senior business executives from the Calgary Community serve as judges, using their unique backgrounds, experience and perspectives to critically assess the participants' presentations. Teams are judged on creativity, insight, substance and plausibility of implementation.
Competition winners will receive varying amounts of cash and in-kind prizes, to be determined nearing the date of the competition.
The top team from each preliminary pool will advance to an afternoon final.
