The 2nd Annual SMM Case Competition
The Society of Minority Managers would like to thank you for your interest in
the 2nd Annual SMM Case Competition. Last year, our first case challenge was a great success. We partnered up with General Electric and provided one of the biggest case competitions in Krannert. This year, we are turning our attention to the underclassmen members of our organization. Are mission is to help develop the skills that aren’t always taught in the classroom. The competition will include 4-6 teams consisting of freshmen/sophomores which will take place on Thursday, March 28th. A schedule of events will be provided to the teams team the morning after the application deadline ends. If you have any immediate questions regarding the case competition that aren’t provided on this site, please contact Frank Pace at firstname.lastname@example.org. Application Directions: Each team member should determine a team captain. That team captain needs to fill out this application no later than Tuesday, March 19th at 11:59 p.m.
be prepared to submit a MS PowerPoint copy of their presentation via email to email@example.com by Wednesday, March 27th, at 11:59 PM. The judging panel will evaluate teams based on content and presentation skills. Each team will be asked questions at the conclusion of their presentation by the judging panel. These questions will be based on the information presented by the team. There may be no right or wrong answers to the questions posed by the judging panel, however, part of the scoring will be based on the team’s ability to field the questions quickly. Teams will be judged on the viability of their strategy and logical flow of their overall presentation. Presentations will also be judged based on the team’s ability to analyze the information presented in the case, and clearly and effectively communicate a recommended course of action.
