Annual Kogod Case Competition

Students present their cases to an experienced panel of judges.

About the Case Competition

The Case Competition is one of the premier annual events hosted by the Kogod School of Business.

It is an excellent opportunity for students to sharpen their communication skills, presentation style, and problem-solving techniques. The 25th Annual Competition will take place in February 2018. Registration for individual students and teams will open in early November 2017.

Students have the opportunity to network with over 60 business leaders who judge the competition. The event is open to all graduate and undergraduate students at AU and invited Kogod-partner schools.


Contact the organizers at (202) 885-1982 or with any questions.
