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.

    STUDENTS ARE PROVIDED ACCESS TO THE OFFICIAL LIVE BUSINESS CASE. Note: Students and faculty should absolutely not reach out directly to munevo during the competition outside of the designated time for the kickoff webinar and office hours session. You’ll have time to ask questions then. In order to be most equitable, we want to provide each team with the same information and access to the company.
