Sign Up for the Heavener International Case Competition!

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. Due to the unique circumstances of 2020 and 2021, we have decided to open the competition this year exclusively to Heavener students. For the first time, we are excited to give our business students the chance to compete in a consulting case competition right here in Gainesville. The Heavener International Case Competition will be held in-person on April 10th, 2021 in Heavener Hall. 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.

If you have any questions, please reach out to UF.HICC@gmail.com
