What’s it about? The Haskayne 24 Hour Case Competition is a unique competition that brings together the pressure of business decision-making with the students’ developing skills in teamwork, analysis, communication, critical thinking, and quick “on-your-feet” action. Student teams will work around the clock (literally) to find solutions to real-life problems, and then present their ideas in an effective and clear manner to a panel of judges. Senior business executives from the Calgary Community serve as judges, using their unique backgrounds, experience and perspectives to critically assess the participants’ presentations. Teams are judged on creativity, insight, substance and plausibility of implementation
What’s in it for me? Cash prizes, and a chance to bring home a win for Rotman!
