Submitted by Brent Fritzemeier
The Kansas State University College of Business Administration will welcome Master of Business Administration students from across the region for the 2018 Big 12 MBA Case Competition on April 12-14.
The competition, which is in its 12th year, invites teams of four MBA students from each of the 10 schools that make up the Big 12 Conference to compete against one another in a live case study. This year's case will present teams with a business challenge facing AT&T, the competition's sponsor.
"We are thrilled to be showcasing our college by hosting this year's Big 12 MBA Case Competition," said Chwen Sheu, associate dean for academic programs. "This event is a great opportunity for students to apply what they are learning in the classroom to a real-world scenario in a competitive environment. We are thankful for the support of AT&T in partnering with us for the event."
Sheu also stressed the opportunities for developing additional collaborations with AT&T, including faculty/student projects, internships and hiring.
Following a welcome social on Thursday evening, the teams will receive the case on Friday morning and have 24 hours to complete their analysis. Then on Saturday, each team will present their findings to a panel of judges, with 15 minutes for presentations followed by a 15-minute question and answer session. The event will conclude with an awards dinner and social beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday in the Business Building atrium.
