2018 Corporate Case Competition

Student participation in the annual UM-Flint Corporate Case Competition more than doubled from the inaugural event last year.

The impact and scope of the competition extends even beyond this significant jump in student involvement, organizers said.

The contest teamed up 90 students with corporate partners, as they answered the question “How does a business create and maintain a highly engaged workforce?”
