*** Thank you for your interest in the UMSL - CUIBE Case Competition. Please contact Emily Lane (laneem@umsl.edu) if you are interested in having your team participate in March 11th-20th 2021 CUIBE Case Competition***

The College of Business and the International Business Institute host the annual Case Competition where global challenges provide eager students with opportunities to showcase their critical thinking skills and business talents. This year the competition has been moved to a virtual platform while still maintaining a unique format by presenting students with an actual issue that a company is currently confronting in its global business interactions along with a virtual visit of said company. Students apply their classroom knowledge to real issues just as they would with similar problems in their future careers.

The teams are critiqued by a panel of judges without knowledge of the school they represent. The judges are high-ranked executives from St. Louis companies that are doing business globally. This is a great way for business students to learn how to work in teams, under very tight time constraints, and be able to achieve a solution that is well researched and feasible to reach.

Take a look at the 2019 UMSL-CUIBE IB Case Competition Team:

The next IB Case Competition will be hosted by the University of Missouri - St. Louis in March 11th-20th, 2021. The registration fee is $100. There are eleven places left to be filled - first come - first serve. For more information on how to register your team, contact Emily Lane (laneem@umsl.edu / 314-516- 6297 or 314-578-7514).
