2nd Annual Greater Houston Case Competition
April 22, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pmFree
We are excited to announce the 2nd Annual Greater Houston Case Competition, a collaboration between the TMC Consulting Club, the UH Bauer College of Business Consulting Club, and the Jones School of Business Consulting Club at Rice. This event will take place Saturday, April 22nd, at UH Bauer College of Business, in the University Classroom and Business Building.
In order to be considered for the competition, please download and fill out the application found here. Applications are due Friday, April 7th. If you do not want to participate, you can also come as a spectator to observe the team presentations. Teams will be assigned the morning of the competition, and will consist of a mixture between TMC Consulting Club, Bauer, and Jones members. A case will be given the morning of the event, and contestants will work together with their team to assemble a strategy for how to approach the case. The judges will consist of consultants working at major firms in Houston. The winners will be given a cash prize, and a great addition to their resumes. Immediately following the competition, there will be a one hour networking event with the consultants.
This is a great opportunity to meet fellow trainees in the consulting club, as well as work together with MBA candidates to apply your consulting skills and get feedback from the consultants serving as judges. We are really looking forward to building on the success of last year’s competition, and hope that you will all join us for another great event!
