My name is Oluseye Ogunyemi, and I am the Case Competition Communication Coordinator for Illinois (Gies) MBA.

We would like to invite the Department of Civil and Environment Engineering to the inaugural 2018 University-Wide Case Competition that will take place on Saturday, November 3, 2018.

The event will begin on Saturday at approximately 8:30 a.m. The case will be distributed prior to the event so the teams can have ample time to prepare their presentation. The competition will conclude with an Awards Reception on Saturday evening. We are hoping to secure a live case sponsor, and the company sponsor will be announced as the event approaches.

Teams must be composed of three to four Graduate students with one full-time MBA student. The Illinois MBA Program can assist in assigning an MBA student to your team if necessary. This is an invitation-only event.

Registration fee is $20, it includes the team entry fee as well as meals/snacks for the participants. If we receive your commitment by the Friday, September 28 deadline, a spot will be guaranteed/secured for your team. We realize it might be too early to have specific team member names available, however, we only need a commitment that your department will be participating. A separate email will be forthcoming with links to the competition’s registration website and payment information.
