Case competitions are a great way to exercise your analytical skills, presentation skills, and networking skills. In some competitions, you will get a case to prepare in advance, but in other ones, you will get the case on the day of the competition and develop a case presentation in just a few hours. Here are some of the case competitions hosted at UTM, but feel free to search for external competitions and receive 50% funding from the Department.
Ready, Set, Market! (RSM)
RSM is the first marketing case competition at UTM. In a team, you will analyze a real company and come up with a marketing solution for the business. You can also win cash prizes if you get in top 3! Find out more here.
Show me the Green (SMG)
If you have a passion for sustainability and innovation, then you should check out SMG! Hosted by the UCS, this conference centres on shaping the business leaders of tomorrow, while also introducing a sustainable invention or practice and how to implement it within a business entity. Delegates must be able to prove this implementation will have a positive effect on the environment as well as increase revenue, save costs, or increase operational efficiency for their respective companies. Pssst, the top 3 winners also get cash prizes up to $3000 per team! Check out last year’s SMG here.
IMI Finance Competition
If you’re into stocks and trading, make sure to participate in this competition. Just like playing an online game, you can trade stocks and make money virtually. If you have a great investing strategy, you can present your strategy in front of a panel of industry judges. Don’t forget about awards, prizes, and networking too!
