Competition Format

Students are presented with a case in the morning that will require critical thinking and the application of a team’s knowledge of ethics, business, accounting, and information technology. Students can use any resources available on campus in preparing solutions except consulting with non-team members.

Presentations

Each team will present in the afternoon before a panel of judges drawn from the professional community. Teams are encouraged to use PowerPoint or other technology to enhance their presentation.

Judges will use the following criteria to evaluate presentations:

  • Critical Issues: Did the team clearly and appropriately identify the critical issued rased by the case?
  • Evidence: The team's analysis showed excellent use of evidence, including supplemental research as appropriate.
  • Recommendations: The recommendations clearly addressed the critical issues. Recommendations were feasible, creative, and appropriate.
  • Q&A: Answers during the Q & A portion were clear, thoughtful, and relevant. All team members participated in the presentation.
