WHAT IS THE HEALTHCARE CASE COMPETITION?

The Healthcare Case Competition brings together graduate students across UNC’s leading graduate schools to examine a real-world healthcare business challenge. This is a great venue to showcase your leadership, critical thinking, creativity, and network with other future healthcare leaders—in addition to winning a prize.

  • UNC School of Nursing

Key Dates:

  • October 10th – Team registration begins
  • November 5th – Case distributed to participants at kick-off event at UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School
  • November 5th-10th – Participants work in teams to analyze the case, understand the key business challenge, formulate recommendations, and develop a brief PowerPoint presentation
  • November 11th – Participants present analysis and recommendations to panel of judges, including faculty across UNC's graduate schools, after which winners will be announced

Prizes:

  • 1st Place Team: $1,000
  • 2nd Place Team: $500
  • 3rd Place Team: $200

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!
