CHAIR’S WELCOME

Welcome to CaseIT 2018! Over the past 14 years, undergraduate case competition teams from around the globe have shown our CaseIT family what it means to be persistent, dedicated, ambitious, and tenacious. So in our fifteenth anniversary year, we asked ourselves, after providing so much value to us at CaseIT, how can we give back to you–our competitors, coaches, sponsors, and community partners?

To answer this question, we bring to you, CaseIT 2018. This year, we are finding new ways to challenge top business students to stretch their capabilities and expand their learning; we are building stronger relationships and global connections with our sponsors and community partners; and we are providing every opportunity for competitors to shine on our global stage.

Delivering on these goals means that changes to CaseIT are underway this year. An expected timeline of competition announcements can be found below–we can’t wait to unveil these details throughout the year! If you have any questions, please inquire with our team at: caseit@sfu.ca

Warm Regards,
Madeline Millsip
