Gold Sponsor: PwC
Get ready for three days of competition, workshops, and networking!
At Case@Brown, you’ll join your classmates in participating in the first and only student-run case competition on Brown’s campus, in which teams of four will compete to develop the best solution to a business-related case study provided by PwC. You’ll have the opportunity to present in front of professionals and meet other students who are interested in management consulting - those who are not competing are still welcome to attend the workshops and networking sessions.
Whether you’ve already gone through the recruiting process or you’re just starting to explore consulting, Case@Brown welcomes individuals of all backgrounds (no experience necessary)!
The competition will be held in New Watson, the glass building across Starr Plaza from the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs. We will begin the competition at Stephen Robert '62 Hall.
You'll get the opportunity to speak and connect with Case@Brown sponsors. In addition to in-person networking events, all attending competitors will have their resumes and portfolios sent to the competition's sponsors.
Case@Brown workshops provide participants with insight to the consulting industry, case studies, market sizing preparation, interview bootcamp, and more. You'll get the chance to hear personal experiences and lessons from the consulting world.
For the competition, teams will be asked to solve a case problem (e.g.: Should Company X acquire Company Y?). At the end, company representatives judge the solutions presented by each team and will have the ability to personally scout out new talent.
Thank you to our sponsors for all of their support!
