Women of Tippie: Empower, Connect, and Learn: Participate in the 2023 National Women’s Case Competition, Hosted by The University of Texas Austin.

Women of Tippie: Empower, connect, and learn: Participate in the 2023 National Women’s Case Competition, hosted by The University of Texas at Austin McCombs School of Business. Did you know that nationwide while 50% of business students are women, they make up only 29% of case competition contestants? This event is an opportunity for women to display their creativity, strategic thinking, and confidence while solving a business challenge.

How to get selected for the competition team:

Apply to be on the first Tippie team to compete in this case competition! Tippie will be sending a team of 4 undergraduate BBA women (trans and non-binary students are welcome). Prior completion or current enrollment in BUS 3000 (BCaP) preferred. Professor Beth A. Livingston, Faculty Director, Kathleen Dore – Henry B. Tippie Women’s Leadership Program will serve as the team advisor.  Professor Livingston, Frank Business Communication Center directors, and Undergraduate Program Office staff will select the team.
