Heavener Students,

Every year, the Heavener International Case Team hosts over 15 Business schools from all over the world to compete in the Heavener International Case Competition.

All current undergraduate students are invited to compete in teams of 3-4. Each team will designate a Team Captain, who will serve as the liaison to the Organizing Committee.

Please use the following form to sign your team up to compete here.

Each team will be assigned a 25-minute window in which they will have 15 minutes to provide their strategic recommendations immediately followed by a 10-minute question and answer period to a panel of judges. Teams will be required to attend a rules & procedures meeting the week leading up on Tuesday, April 6th at 9:00AM via Zoom. Case Competitions provide an extraordinary opportunity for business students to apply professional and communication skills to solving real-world, complex issues firms today are looking to solve. Please note if you intend to enroll in the case class, this will serve as your tryout.
