On January 26, 2013 GPAC will host the Sol Price School of Public Policy’s Second Annual Nonprofit Case Challenge focused on the nonprofit sector.
The Nonprofit Case Challenge gives students an opportunity to work on a “live case” – a situation facing a nonprofit organization dealing with real-time strategic and/or operating challenges and opportunities. Case competitions offer a unique and personally challenging opportunity to tackle a real organizational challenge in a stressful setting.
Students will be given a scenario in which a nonprofit organization faces a significant issue and/or opportunity. The case will require students – working in teams of 3 or 4 – to reflect on and apply their academic knowledge and practical experiences to create and present recommendations to a panel of judges. Judges, composed of Price School alumni, faculty, nonprofit professionals and consultants, will evaluate the presentations and select the winning teams.
This is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate your skills and meet professionals from the industry. Winners will receive prizes and have an awesome addition to their résumé!
- Kickoff on Thursday, January 24th at 5:30 pm in TCC 302 – The case and team assignments will be revealed. Students have about 38 hours to work with their team.
- Case Challenge begins Saturday, January 26th at 8:30 am.
Information Session – Tuesday, January 15th at 5:30 pm, TCC 302
All students are encouraged to attend an information session to learn more about the details of the Case Challenge, hear testimonials, and ask questions. The information session will be held Tuesday, January 15th at 5:30 pm in TCC 302.
