IB Competition FAQ:
What is the IB Competition?
A: The Integrated Business Competition is our department’s signature event. This business competition provides the opportunity for students to showcase the broad range of soft and hard skills they learn during their time in our program. The event goals are threefold: 1) to familiarize students with the strategic planning side of running a business, 2) to integrate the various areas of expertise required to operate a business unit successfully, and 3) to provide an opportunity to practice using these tools in multiple settings. Each of the eight IB courses will post the same case study but each will ask a different question from the case study that pertains to the course.
Q: What are the requirements to compete in the IB Competition?
A: Simple! Just form a team of 3-5 members that you wish to work with and choose only five out of the eight questions from the posted case study to answer. Once your team is satisfied with your answers, prepare a 10 minute, pre-recorded, presentation and submit it for review no later than Monday, October 19th at 9:00 AM.
Q: What happens if our team is selected to move forward to the semi-final round?
A: If your team is selected to move forward to the semi-final round then “suit up” and prepare to deliver your presentation live on Friday, October 23rd at 5:00 PM on Zoom (invitations will be sent out). Be prepared to defend your answers from the case study. Teams will then be selected to move to the final round which will take place around 7 PM.
