PGCG is hosting our first ever annual case competition. All advanced degree candidates (non-MBA graduate students) and postdoctoral fellows are welcome to participate in teams of 3 - 5. This event is very resourceful for individuals who are thinking of applying to consulting firms in the near future as case interviews are required for every consulting firm interview process.
On the day of competition, participants will be given a case question and will be expected to present a comprehensive analysis and give supported recommendations for as problem solutions via power-point presentations. All presenting teams will receive feedback and the 4 best initial presentations will be selected for a second round of judging from which the winning team will be chosen. Following the competition a panel discussion and breakout session will occur.
