I’M NOT A BUSINESS SCHOOL STUDENT! CAN I STILL SUCCEED IN A CASE COMPETITION?

Yes! The Healthcare Case Competition is cross-disciplinary by design! The case will leverage experience and knowledge across health science disciplines.

In fact, participants will be encouraged to form teams of 5 with no more than 2 people per team from any individual school.


HELP! HOW CAN I FORM A TEAM IF I DON’T KNOW ANYONE AT OTHER UNC SCHOOLS?

Students may register partial teams if they are unable to form a complete team (no more than 2 people per team from any individual school). The organizers of the case competition will assist with forming complete teams for those who register partial teams.


WAIT, I STILL HAVE QUESTIONS!
