The NIBS Worldwide Case Competition, one of the oldest undergraduate case competitions in the world, is an intense competition that brings undergraduate students from business schools worldwide to analyze business cases, prepare solutions to real problems, and present recommendations to panels of senior managers, policymakers and academics.

St. Mary’s Associate Professor Jeffrey E. Johnson, Ph.D., who serves as chair of the 2016 NIBS Organizing Committee, describes the event as “an exceptional opportunity for teams to test their business strategy skills in a highly competitive and challenging environment.”

The competition starts with a qualifying round held in November. About 30 teams will participate, with the top 16 moving on to the competition at St. Mary’s in February.

“The Greehey School of Business is honored to host the 2016 Network of International Business Schools Worldwide Case Competition. We are excited to showcase our school and university, as well as provide an exceptional education and cultural experience for our students,” Johnson said.
