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.
