Case Competitions give students the opportunity to test their skills using potential work place situations. Working in teams, students are presented with a business case and asked to prepare a presentation of case analysis and solution within a given time frame. Next, each team presents its ideas to a panel of judges. The winning teams—the ones whose solutions the judges found most effective—receive a prize.
As a component of the Accenture Leadership Center, Leadership Case Competitions are designed to imitate real-life settings in which time for finding solutions to problems is indeed limited and also foster work among teams in a way that allows each student to practice and learn the leadership skills necessary for such problem-solving in the future.
