Live Case Competition

Designing and Managing High-Impact Case Competitions Just Got a Whole Lot Easier...

What is a Case Competition?

CapSource’s Live Case Competition model enables educators to engage students with real-world companies looking for an innovative solution to a challenge within their company.

Students teams are paired with a “host company” and receive information on the problem they are currently facing. These teams then compete against one another to come up with the most innovative and effective solution for the host company.

These experiences are always engaging for students and valuable for organizations. These types of competitions are resume-worthy experiences and help students develop industry-related skills which help them excel in their post-college careers.

How Educators Can Use Case Competitons

Enroll Students in an Active Case Competition

CapSource runs several Case Competitions throughout the year, including the current IACBE competition. Utilizing the CapSource platform, educators can identify interesting Case Competitions and enroll and manage student teams.

Design and Run Your Own Custom Competition

Educators can design custom Case Competitons on the platform for any number of students to participate in. This is especially useful for university wide competitions and allows for easy management across many classes and students.

Benefits of a Case Competition


By working with real-world companies on real-world issues, students are able to connect textbook theories to solutions for these complex problems. This is often missing in many college classrooms and allows for a more robust learning experience for students.


Our system allows you to find or define a Case Competition challenge, onboard and manage students, share resources, receive updates, track progress, and evaluate outcomes in a fully customizable and branded way.


Employers often note the skill gap as the biggest challenge when hiring for entry level positions. By enrolling students in Case Competitions they are building soft and hard skills which translate to life after college giving them the best chance for success.

On-Board Participants and Build Teams

Once you found an active case that best fits your needs or you have finalized your own competition, you will be able to easily onboard students as well as mentors, and judges (if needed) to the platform. Participants can be grouped into any size team.

Once the teams are finalized, students can begin reviewing all the project information available.

Track and Manage Students

Track and manage student progress throughout the Case Competiton. This ensures students stay on track and complete high-quality work throughout the Competition.

Evaluate Preformance

Evaluate each team’s performance directly on the CapSource platform. Students will be able to receive feedback from not just educators but also industry partners and judges. Students often receive high-quality feedback from industry partners, and top performers will be ranked.

As a bonus, we help your students reflect on their experience, and we provide you with their feedback on the competition to allow educators to learn what went well and how to improve these experiences in the future.
