Judges

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:

•        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 members in the presentation.
•        Quality of answers and responsiveness to questions asked by the judges.
