CaseIT is an annual international undergraduate business case competition with a strong Management Information Systems (MIS) focus designed to find the best and brightest in strategic IT case analysis. It is a forum where students from various backgrounds of IT and business can showcase their skills in areas such as teamwork, problem solving, and critical thinking to a panel of industry professionals.
Inception, under the directorship of Paul Cyr and Zephaniah Wong, CaseIT began as a competition between undergraduate teams within Simon Fraser University.
In 2006, under the leadership of Andrew Kumar, CaseIT reached a national level through the inclusion of schools from all across Canada.
Under the guidance of Rey Lim, CaseIT 2008 officially established itself as a global competition by bringing teams from four continents – North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia.
CaseIT 2014 saw the addition of the Wildcard Round through Jillian-Joy Marlinga.
For CaseIT 2015, Gwendoline Wong changed the competition to an invitational format, increased the number of competing teams to 19, and introduced InTech, a parallel case competition exclusively for SFU students.
The number of Team Hosts in CaseIT 2016 grew under the leadership of Moses To. Each team is now paired with their own Team Host. In addition, Finals presentations were live streamed for the first time and a CaseIT online portal was created.
