Competitions

Case competitions are an important part of the MBA experience, and MBAA encourages all students to make them part of their academic career.  Dozens of competitions take place throughout the year, sponsored by a wide array of schools, companies and organizations.  In many cases, Smith clubs help organize teams and competitions.  This list is not comprehensive, but it is a good starting point to help you think about which competitions you might want to be a part of.  If you know of a competition that is not listed here, please contact mbaa@rhsmith.umd.edu and we will add it to the list.
