Course Title

IACBE Fall 2020 Scholastic Live Case Competition

Collaboration Overview

IACBE is a business school accreditor that works on ensuring teaching and learning quality for 200+ member schools. CapSource and IACBE are partnering to help our network *easily* run a high-impact Live Case Competition experience at their school this Fall and we're looking to partner with a company to run the Live Case with.

Students will prepare a recorded video presentation and 3-5 page memo + an appendix for a panel of judges, including your company executives. Your company and project details will not be shared until the official competition kickoff. We are aiming for A LOT of teams from different schools, so you'll be getting insights across a variety of experiences. Your company will get to award the top two presentations across all of them.

Engagement Format: Live Case

Think "Hackathon" or Case Competition with a whole class of students! This learning format allows educators to deliver experiential learning to students at scale. Students are often split into groups to work on a live case (or a series of cases) from a real host company that directly relates to key learning objectives.
