A panel of judges, drawn from alumni and the professional and corporate community, will evaluate each team’s presentation. The cases will be provided to the judges at an orientation on the day of the event.
The following criteria will be used to evaluate team presentations:
• Critical Issues: Did the team clearly and appropriately identify the critical issues raised 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.
• Overall Impression: The team gave a credible, persuasive, and professional presentation.
