Diversity Mini Case Study Competition

The Career Success Diversity Mini Case Study Competition is an event that brings together teams of top-level, diverse talent from the College of Arts and Sciences to utilize their skills to conduct strategic analysis and offer solutions to a diversity-focused organizational problem. Participants will be provided one week to review the case, develop innovative solutions to the problem, and create a PowerPoint presentation. The teams will present their solutions via PowerPoint on the day of the competition (February 27th).
