Global Case Competition
Developing team solutions to current global issues.The Global Case Competition is a WSU event that brings students together to develop solutions to complex global issues with local implication.
The Global Case Competition at WSU began in spring 2011, bringing graduate and undergraduate students from all WSU campuses to form multi-disciplinary teams to develop solutions to issues currently impacting a global community.
Teams of 4 to 6 students work together under a strict timeline to develop a strategic solution to the selected case. Teams present their strategies to a group of judges who will then decide the winners.
The winning team will have a chance to travel and/or receive a cash prize.Past Competitions
