Business Bowl Format
The BBB competition levels are based upon class codes as of January 1, 2013.
- Class code 1 and 2
- Class code 3 and 4
- Class code 5 and 6
- Class code 7 and 8
Students compete in teams of five students of the same class code against teams in the same level. Mixed teams will NOT be allowed to compete. If you have any questions about your class code, refer to MyBentley or your DAS report.
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.
Each team will present in the afternoon before a panel of judges drawn from the professional community. Teams may use PowerPoint or other technology to enhance their presentation.
Judges will use the following criteria to evaluate presentations:
- The extent to which relevant facts have been identified.
- The extent to which conclusions are based on theory and are reasonable and logical.
- Appropriateness of the solution based upon the facts given.
- Participation of ALL team members in the presentation.
- Quality of answers and responsiveness to questions asked by the judges.

Following the last presentation is the Networking/Awards Reception. The Awards Reception will be held at 4:00 p.m. in the Executive Dining Room in LaCava.
