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.
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.
Furthering the progression of CaseIT, Chair Nima Sarhangpour played an integral role in the incorporation of the CaseIT Foundation. CaseIT 2012 also saw the first University from Australia take part in the event.
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.
