Case Competitions

This semester Tippie Tech will be holding its 3rd annual CyHawk Case Competition at the Tippie College of Business!

Top analytics students from the University of Iowa and Iowa State will compete to create solutions for a complex business problem. Teams from both schools will showcase their problem-solving and analytical skills in this competition. The meeting will begin with a kick-off meeting and then teams will collaborate for a few hours. Ultimately, teams will present to a panel of judges and prizes will be awarded to the winning teams. A pizza lunch will also be provided to all attending.

The event will take place on March 5th beginning at 9 AM in room S121 PBB. Please reach out to any Exec members with questions and look to create a team with fellow members. We will be using our case competition application for the event.
